Materials Science and Engineering
Dr. Ashutosh Goel obtained his Ph.D. in the area of glasses and glass-ceramics from University of Aveiro, Portugal in December 2009 . His doctoral work was focused upon high temperature glass/glass-ceramic seals for solid oxide fuel cells. After obtaining his doctoral degree, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher (January 2010 – March 2011) in the research group of Prof. José M.F. Ferreira at University of Aveiro in the field of bioactive glasses and glass-ceramics for bone tissue engineering. During March 2011-April 2012, he worked as a ‘Glass Scientist’ at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA in the area of immobilization of high-level and low-activity radioactive wastes in glasses. Dr. Goel was employed as a senior scientist at Sterlite Technologies Ltd., India in the area of optical fiber technology prior to his joining the Rutgers faculty in January 2014.
