Over ten years’ progressive experience in various R&D organizations, developing know-how for new processes, directing complicated research topics, designing, supervising, and constructing new mechanical processes. Recognized as multidisciplinary hands on engineer and researcher with considerable advanced experience and knowledge in computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

Dr. Tipu Sultan received his MS and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Hanyang University South Korea. One part of his research activities aims at CFD, wavelets, data compression and convergence acceleration. MS thesis and a few ISI Journal research articles are focused on this pillar. The other part of the research is focused on water treatment processes especially advanced oxidation production (AOP) and ultraviolet (UV) water disinfection using CFD. Ph.D. thesis and a number of ISI Journal research articles are published on this topic. The prime objective of this research work is the design and optimization of UV/H2O2 AOP reactor and water disinfection UV reactor.


He has successfully completed 3 research projects in above mentioned research field funded by Korean government and private industrial sector at Hanyang University South Korea. His research work has been published in various internationally recognized ISI indexed journals and international peer reviewed conference proceedings on the above mentioned research areas. He is also serving as a reviewer for more than 6 international ISI journals in the field of CFD, water treatment and wavelets.
