Biography: 

Naushita is at the School of Sustainable Engineering and Built Environment, Arizona State University. She has published five papers in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings. Her areas of interest include implementation of life-cycle assessment for Indian sewerage system and thermal power plants. She has served as research intern at IIT Bombay and IIT Kharagpur, in projects related to life-cycle analyses. Naushita has been awarded TEQIP-II student research grant for work focusing on ion-exchange water treatment. She has also led two events sponsored by ASME and has been project leader of Project SAHAYOG, which focussed on engineering outreach to school children. She has also served as Member-at-Large of the ASME Student Section at NIT Rourkela and has been a speaker at the Women in Engineering (WE India) conference, the inaugural SWE conference in India. She is also the recipient of Hon'ble Mention for the 2017 ASME Charles T. Main Student Section Leadership Award.
