  • Dr. Dibakar Rakshit is currently an Associate Professor at Department of Energy Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi). He has nineteen years' experience in thermofluid sciences pertaining to design and optimization of energy systems. His interests lie in:

  • Energy storage devices (system optimization/ characterization of storage materials)
  • Battery Thermal Management Systems
  • Polygeneration
  • Heat Exchanger using PCM
  • Green building concepts
  • Waste heat recovery
  • Transient modelling and simulation of high-temperature systems
  • Multiphase flow studies
  • His PhD at The University of Western Australia involved studies of multiphase mass transfer phenomenon related to thermal diffusion of Liquefied Natural Gas (cryogenic fluids). From there Dr Rakshit developed his deep interest for thermal energy storage and pursued it further in his post-doctoral research at Australian Solar Thermal Research Initiative (ASTRI), CSIRO, Australia. Dr Rakshit was mainly involved in characterizing the thermal behaviour of the solar receiver heat transfer fluid required for power generation. After joining IIT Delhi as an Assistant Professor Dr Rakshit continued his study of thermal energy storage capacity of materials that can be utilized for building energy conservation. Dr Rakshit then started pursuing his further research in characterization of Nano Enhanced Phase Change Materials (NEPCM) for thermal energy storage in walls and battery thermal management system using PCM. At IIT Delhi, Dr. Rakshit’s research has been sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology in both national and international programs, Ministry of Education (MoE), GoI, DRDO and many private sectors. Besides these Dr Rakshit got funding from IIT Delhi for developing a new building material characterization laboratory. The major facilities which are available in this laboratory are Differential Scanning Calorimeter and Infrared Camera other than regular chemical characterization apparatus. Dr Dibakar Rakshit has a track record of publishing around 52 research papers in Journals of International repute, 15 monographs and around 44 refereed conference papers.
