About Faculty


Dr (Mrs.) Madhurima Pandey

Professor & Head

Her research group was first to identify arsenic contamination in village Koudikasa, Chhattisgarh. She primarily focus on surface and ground water pollution, their mobility, speciation, removal of pollutants, health impact and modeling of pollutants. She has published 35 research papers in international and national peer-reviewed scientific journals of repute like Current Science, Bioresource Technology, Environmental Geochemistry & Health, International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, Journal of Environmental Protection, Pollution Research, International Journal of Water, Analytical Letters and Analusis and has presented at several conferences. She has guided 06 students for doctoral degree and directed 15 Masters thesis in Environmental Science and Engineering.
