It also helps in creating long term, meaningful connections between students, researchers, and industry around the world.” Only 50 students have been selected throughout the world to attend this program.

Explaining about her proposal and project, Deepika briefed: “I have centered my research for textile dyeing industry at Ludhiana in Punjab and a local drain “Buddha Nullah, which flows throughout this city. This most polluted ‘nullah’ carries industrial toxins to finally merge into river ‘Satluj’ which thus serves polluted water to a large population. Scientifically speaking my proposal is based on very cheap sources from corn-cob in the form of column and modified ‘nano-biochar’ particles for water purification. The water to be purified will be passed through these columns, and be made under different and long hours’ observations to be ultimately treated as useful. I have already collected the waste water and isolated potent dye degrading bacteria. Finally for examination, the group of bacteria was developed in the form of bio-filters for purification, under green technology processes.
Constantly motivated by her mentors at LPU, particularly Vice Chancellor Dr Ramesh Kanwar, family-members and fellow-students, Deepika upholds that success can only be possible through hard-work, determination and dedication.  A true biotechnologist since her tender years, Deepika shares: “LPU has made my childhood dreams come true by guiding me so well to be now on to a global platform, which I really needed for doctoral research. On my part as a Ph.D scholar, I am working hard on eradication of water pollution which is direly needed not only in Punjab and in every other part of India but world around also.”
