Biography: Purnendu K. (Sandy) Dasgupta came to Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge as a graduate student in early 1973 and began studies in electrochemistry. He switched to research on environmental analysis under Professor Philip W West and received his PhD in 1977 in analytical chemistry with a minor in electrical engineering. He worked for a year as a researcher and instructor at LSU following his PhD and then joined the University of California at Davis as an Aerosol Research Chemist at the California Primate Research Center, doing studies on air pollution toxicology while teaching air and water chemistry as an Adjunct Assistant Professor in Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. In 1981 he joined Texas Tech and named a Horn Professor in 1992, named after the first president of the University, the youngest person to be so honored at the time. He remained at Texas Tech for 25 years, joining the University of Texas at Arlington in 2007 as the Chair and Jenkins Garrett Professor. He is an Editor of Analytica Chimica Acta, a major international journal in analytical chemistry.
He has authored more than 350 papers in addition to book chapters, etc. and holds 20 US patents, including one on electrodialytic reagent generation technology on which current ion chromatography is based. Some recent publications are as follows. Anal. Chem. 2014, 86, 7705-7711; Anal. Chem. 2014, 86, 3727-3734; Anal. Chem. 2013, 85, 7994-8000; Anal. Chem. 2012, 84, 8891-8897; Anal.
