Professor Parikshit Goswami (BSc (Tech), MSc, PhD, MRSC, ASDC, C Col, ATI, CText) obtained a bachelor’s degree in textile technology and then worked within different industries, including a world-leading third-party textile testing and quality certification company. Subsequently, he did his MSc in Advanced Textile and Performance Clothing and earned his PhD from the University of Leeds. Professor Goswami is presently the Head of Department of Fashion and Textiles at the University of Huddersfield. Prior to joining the University of Huddersfield, Professor Goswami was the Director of Research and Innovation at the School of Design, University of Leeds and he lead the Fibre and Fabric Functionalisation Research Group.
Professor Goswami’s domains of research are product development using flexible materials and application of chemistry for functionalising textiles. Professor Goswami manages a large profile of research concerned with fibre/polymer science, nonwovens, medical textiles (implantable materials and non-implantable materials), sustainable materials (fundamentally understand the properties of new material), application and development of nano/submicron fibres for novel applications, and plasma treatment for functionalising textiles and textile chemistry.He is a member of Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC), Education, Qualifications and Accreditation Board (EQAB), and was a member of EDANA’s Board Working Group on Sustainability.
