Gadikota Headshot

Dr. Greeshma Gadikota is an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering and a faculty fellow of the Grainger Institute of Engineering. Prior to coming to UW–Madison, Greeshma was a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University (2016-2017) and Columbia University (2014-2015), and a research associate at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (2015-2017). Greeshma received her PhD in Chemical Engineering (2014), and MS degrees in Chemical Engineering (2011) and Operations Research (2008) from Columbia University. She received her BS in Chemical Engineering from Michigan State University (2007).

Gadikota studies multi-scale reaction kinetics by connecting nano- and meso-scale measurements with process-scale developments and field-scale observations using advanced synchrotron characterization methods, computational tools, and laboratory scale reaction systems. Key areas of interest include developing natural and engineered materials for acid gas storage and CH4 recovery, advanced carbonate and clay chemistry and morphology, tracers for gas migration, drilling fluids, recovery of high value materials from low value substrates, and functionalization of materials for sustainable energy and resource recovery coupled with integration with the built environment.
