Dr. Venkataramana Gadhamshetty (Dr.G) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Florida Gulf Coast University. His research interests lies in fundamental and applied aspects of novel bioelectrochemical systems for production of energy carriers from organic wastes, remediation of chlorinated organic compounds in natural water systems. Several of his research projects entail interdisciplinary work involving applied microbiology, nanotechnology, process engineering, and reactor design. Professor Gadhamshetty led research projects in multiple institutions including New Mexico State University, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. In addition, Dr.G has over six years of experience leading turn-key projects related to the manufacturing of co-block polymers, and recovery of dimethylacetamide in multi-stage distillation columns. Dr.G is a Professional Engineer (PE) in the state of New York.

Dr. Gadhamshetty's team is currently developing novel bioelectrochemical processes that can be used for both drinking water treatment and wastewater treatment. Dr.G's research has been funded by federal, state, and private agencies including USEPA and NYSPPI. Dr. Gadhamshetty has over 50 presentations to his credit in national, international, and professional meetings, in addition to thirty peer-reviewed technical articles. Dr. Gadhamshetty serves as: a technical reviewer of proposals for State and Federal Agencies such as the NSF, EPA; an adhoc reviewer for over fifteen international journals; and as a technical Editor for International Journal of Architecture, Engineering, and Construction. Dr.G is an active member in professional societies such as AEESP, ASCE, ASES, and NA-ISMET. Dr. G has been nominated as a Treasurer and Secretary to lead efforts of Clean Energy and Water Division at American Solar Energy Society.

Dr.Gadhamshetty played a key role in New Mexico Space Grant Consortium (NMSGC), where he developed a faculty development program called as a Gaining Retention & Achievement for Students Program (GRASP). In GRASP, he trained more than twenty three faculties to become effective teachers by providing effective learning opportunities for students with different learning styles. Dr.G taught environmental engineering for graduate and undergraduate students. Several of Dr.G's students won national and state awards including EPA-P3, NYSPPI student's competition, and US Navy Award at WESEF.
