Professor - Materials Science and Engineering
The University of Tennessee, Director – UT Nonwovens Research Laborator, USA


After earning his MS and Ph.D. from Georgia Tech in textile and polymer engineering, Dr. Bhat joined the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) in August 1990, where his research covers nonwovens - melt blown, spunbonded and biodegradable, plastics recycling, nanotechnology, sustainable materials, and high performance fibers. He has also conducted research at Edwards Air Force Base, CA on specialty fibers, and NASA/MSFC on multifunctional composites. As the director of UTNRL he has focused on production of nanofibers from thermoplastic polymers by meltblowing. Dr. Bhat has published more than 200 research papers and has three US Patents. He was inducted as an Outstanding Young Engineering Alumni by Georgia Tech (1996); received the Distinguished Achievement Award from the Fiber Society (1999); elected as a Fellow of the Textile Institute (2005), received the TechniTex India Research Achievement Award (2008) and TAPPI NET division Technical Achievement Award (2014). He has served as the president of the Fiber Society and is an active member of INDA, TAPPI and the Textile Institute.
