Dr. Sorokhaibam Laxmi Gayatri is currently working as an Assistant Professor in Chemistry Department of Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology Nagpur since February 2015. Prior to VNIT , she was working at CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory Pune on CSIR five year planned project," Sustainable Environmental Technologies for Chemical & Allied Industries". There she worked on development of new materials and material modification for Environmental applications like Desulfurization of Transportation fuels and Industrial wastewater Treatment.
Dr. Gayatri did her Ph.D.. from National Institute of Technology Silchar in 2012. She has worked extensively in interdisciplinary areas relating to Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. The application and modification of various carbon/biomass based materials towards the removal of organics from aqueous streams has been her reserach area. Her work is concerned with development of techno-economically feasible techniques for wastewater treatment which can solve the problem of Indian industries in their ever increasing demand for freshwater by providing recycle and re-use option through systematic development of several methodologies and Process Integration.
