Dr. Anju Gupta received her B.E. from University of Mumbai, India, her M.S. from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and her Ph.D. from the University of Rhode Island--all in Chemical Engineering. Her research at the University of Rhode Island focused on the fundamental understanding of interactions of drug delivery moieties with model cell membranes. Dr. Gupta held a tenure-track joint appointment in the Departments of Chemistry and Engineering at Texas A&M International University, Laredo, Texas. There, she received a National Science Foundation grant to design novel peptides inspired from spider-silk, and was a co-PI on grants to study peer-assessment based learning and to develop a chemical engineering-based workshop for pre-service high school teachers. Dr. Gupta also held the position of Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology before joining the Chemical Engineering department at Rochester Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor.
