Dr. Sushant Anand is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago (since 2015). He earned his Ph.D. degree from the University of Cincinnati and his BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Kharagpur (India). From 2012-2015, he was a postdoctoral associate/fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT. In 2013 he received Branco Weiss Fellowship to investigate new surface architectures for enhancing condensation and water harvesting. Dr. Anand has received multiple grants from NSF including the prestigious NSF CAREER Award in 2019. At UIC, the Anand group is focused on interfacial phenomenon on simple and heterogeneous surfaces, especially enhancing dropwise condensation heat transfer, making anti-icing surfaces; developing new methods for making colloids and nanomaterials.
