Professor Sati Bhattacharya taught Chemical Engineering for 40 years at the RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. He also taught at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India and the University of Waterloo at Canada. He was the founding Director of the RMIT Rheology and Materials Processing Centre and continued at that position from 1988 until 2008. His current research activities include in areas such as concentrated dispersion rheology, polymer rheology, polymer processing, polymer nanocomposites and nanostructured materials.
Professor Bhattacharya supervised more than 50 PhD students, authored/co-authored 375 scientific papers and published 2 books and several book chapters and 6 provisional patents. He consulted and collaborated with a large number of industries.
In 2012 he was made a life member of the Australian Society of Rheology for service to Australian rheology. In 2013 he was awarded the Australian Society of Rheology Medallion for achieving excellence in rheology research. He is currently the President-elect of PPS.
