Professor Parikshit Goswami (B.Sc. (Tech), MSc, PhD, MRSC, ASDC, CCol, CText, FTI, CMgr, MCMI, FHEA) did his MSc in Advanced Textile and Performance Clothing, and his PhD from the University of Leeds. Professor Goswami is the Associate Dean for Research, Innovation, and Knowledge Exchange for Arts and Humanities. Previously he was the Head of the Department for Fashion and Textiles and then of Music and Design Arts at the University of Huddersfield. He is also the Director of the Technical Textiles Research Centre. Before joining the University of Huddersfield, Professor Goswami was the Director of Research and Innovation at the School of Design at the University of Leeds and led the Fibre and Fabric Functionalisation Research group at Leeds. In his research, since joining the University of Huddersfield, Professor Goswami has proactively developed the research profile and activities in Technical Textiles. He is committed to multidisciplinary research and is working towards building constructive collaborations with the University of Huddersfield and industries to transform the competitiveness of the European technical textiles industries. Since joining Huddersfield, Professor Goswami has won government and commercial funding for several research projects, including a collaborative £5.4M project (AHRC Creative Economy- Industry Challenge) with the University of Leeds and the Royal College of Art.
