PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Graduate Research Assistant University of Florida 2012

- Designed feeding mechanism and the superheating circuit system for gasification of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) to obtain

syngas using superheated steam with a 3KW energy input.

- Set up the system and performed laboratory tests, received hands on experience with thermocouples, flow meters, mass

spectrometers, gas chromatography equipment and data acquisition systems.

- Performed process calculations for optimum steam to waste ratios and actual steam temperature measurements by

thermocouples using MATLAB and energy balance techniques.

Technical Intern Schlumberger Asia Services (Wireline), India 2009

- Assisted field engineers in a logging job on a drilling rig to check cementing integrity using Ultrasonic Imager Tool.

- Worked on logging tools like resistance, gamma ray and MDT tools while maintaining a safe work environm ent.

Technical Intern Oil and Natural Gas Corporation, India 2009

- Worked in the oil drilling division on drilling equipment li ke drill bits, drill pipes, casing, blowout preventers, Christmas

trees and well stimulation and well completion processes.

- Regularly visited drilling rigs and witnessed directional drilling and workover rig operations.

KEY ACADEMIC PROJECTS

Modeling and Simulation of an HVAC system for a commercial building, University of Florida, 2012

Designed and simulated the complete HVAC system for a commercial building using Carrier HAP. Simulated for office and

laboratory spaces using different energy conservation measures.

Design of Solar Air Heating and Air Conditioning system, University of Florida, 2013
