Current residence: 
Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Mauritius
Ackmez Mudhoo holds a First Class B.Eng. (Hons.) degree in Chemical and Environmental Engineering, a Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) degree by research in Chemical Engineering and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Environmental Engineering, all from the University of Mauritius. His research interests span (i) bioremediation processes of organic residues and pollutant moieties, (ii) green chemistry approaches for enhanced biomass pretreatment for bioenergy production, (iii) adsorption, and (iv) the mathematical analysis and modeling of the related processes. He is presently Lecturer in the department and counts over eight years of experience in lecturing and research in the fields of chemical engineering and environmental engineering. He also reckons two years’ full-time experience (2006-2008) as ‘Chemical Process Engineer’ in the design, operation and maintenance of a sewage treatment plant. He has also been a TWAS Affiliate for the 2013-2017 Tenure, and continues to serve as Associate Editor for 'Environmental Chemistry Letters' (Springer).
