Bio

I am interested to pursue a career in engineering design, cost analysis, optimization and process control with emphasis on alternative chemicals and fuels research.

I am keen to utilize my previous expertise gained in sustainable process development and life cycle assessment to focus on quantifying sustainability for government and business decisions. My experience in the United States Environmental Protection Agency helped me in gaining the perspective for protecting the environment of the United States and making more productive use of natural resources, while at the same time protecting business interests and making them more profitable.

I enjoy making a difference to the society by contributing towards climate change mitigation, green engineering, sustainable waste management. My long term career goals include integrating sustainability education in engineering curriculum to better prepare workforce for future development.
