Dr. Jayesh R. Bellare is full Professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering, I.I.T. Mumbai since July 1990, and visiting Professor at U.D.C.T., Bombay University in 1999. He did his schooling at the Bombay Scottish School and his B.Tech. in chemical engineering from I.I.T. Mumbai (where he stood first with Silver Medal in 1982). He earned his Ph.D. (in 1988) in Chemical Engineering and Materials Science from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, U.S.A. for his work on cryoelectron microscopy and polarized optical microscopy of colloidal surfactant systems (with Professors H. Ted Davis and L. E. Scriven). He was visiting researcher at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel (1984, with Professor Y. Talmon). He was post-doctoral fellow in Mathematics and in Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, U.S.A. (1989) and in Materials Science and Engineering at M.I.T., Cambridge, U.S.A. (1990) on microphase separated copolymers, electron microscopy of their morphology, and simulation of their interfaces (with Professors David Hoffman and E. L. Thomas). He has several international publications, conference presentations, and patents. He has lectured at several research centers, including Caltech, IBM Almaden, and Sohio. He is the inventor on nine patents (three granted), two of which are being commercially used internationally. His awards include the I.C.I.-IIChE Excellence in Process/Product Development Award (1996), the N.R.D.C. Invention Award (with Prof. A. P. Kudchadker); the Presidential Award of the Electron Microscopy Society of America; the Kazato Award, Kyoto, Japan, and the Best microscopist from Developing Countries Award of the Microscopy Society of America. Dr. Bellare was invited to join I.I.T. after spending eight years in the U.S.A. He is also: Coordinator of the Microstructure Engineering and Ultramicroscopy Laboratory; ex-Convener of an inter-institution group proposing to set up a Center for Colloid and Interfacial Engineering; and past secretary of the Indian Society for Surface Science and Technology, western India chapter. He has been selected member of ???, the international honor society, and listed in the international Who's Who in Technology. As avocations, Jayesh enjoys C.A.M., F.M.S., photography, graphics, animation, and amateur radio (call sign KA0SMJ). Dr. Bellare strongly believes in close interaction between academia and industry. He is a very astute technology evaluator. He is very active as a consultant for a variety of industries, e.g., Unilever, Cadila, Marico, Top Syringe Manufacturing Company, E. Merck, Asian Paints, Ponds, Hindustan Lever Research Center, I.C.I. Alchemie Research Center, Gammon India, Henkel, Minuteman Inc. (USA), Rohm and Haas (USA), Bijou, Orthotec Orthodontics and others.
Dr. Bellare's research interests are wide; they include: drug formulations and delivery systems, microstructure engineering; ultramicroscopy; nanomaterials; liposomes; specialty glasses; siilcates; membranes; biomedical devices; sensors; membranes; surface modification of polymers; and instrument prototyping.
