Amit Rawal


Amit Rawal obtained his PhD from the University of Bolton, UK, and a Master of Philosophy from The University of Manchester, UK. He is a recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship for experienced researchers to conduct research in the field of nonwovens in Germany. He has also been awarded the Fulbright-Nehru Academic and Professional Excellence Fellowship to initiate collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. In addition, he has received numerous awards, including the Young Researcher Fellowship from the prestigious M.I.T, Cambridge, for exemplary research in Computational Mechanics, Fellowship of the Textile Institute, CSIR special research award, and an Outstanding    Young Faculty Fellowship by the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IITD). Currently, he is working as a Professor at the Department of Textile and Fibre Engineering, IIT Delhi. He has published more than 150 publications in various journals and conferences. He has developed various three-dimensional (3D) analytical models for predicting geometrical, mechanical, and wetting properties of a diverse range of textile and allied structures. His research interests are not only limited to the structure, mechanics, and wetting behavior of textile and allied materials but also focused on the structure-property relationship of buckypapers, electrospun mats, low surface energy superhydrophobic fibrous mats, geotextiles, composites, auxetic, piezoresistive, and piezoelectric materials. He is an editorial board member of Textile Research Journal, Journal of Industrial Textiles and Research Journal of Textile & Apparel. Recently, he was honored as the twenty-ninth recipient of the King Carl XVI Gustaf Professorship in Environmental Science for the year 2024/25.
