• Developed free to use software that allows the prediction of several important thermodynamic properties.

• Software primarily targeted for users in the chemical industry for solvent selection and formulation.

• MOSCEDCAD v1.0, GCMOCEDcad v1.0 and MOSCEDcad IP v1.0 already published (link). As of now, several users from academic and industry background. WORK EXPERIENCE

Shandong Weijiao C.O, Shandong Province, China July 2015 – September 2015 Intern-Process Control

• Designed numerous separation columns to purify highly volatile compounds.

• Performed heat and mass transfer, column efficiency and product generation calculation.

• Worked directly under the supervision of senior engineering team.

• Operated in team environment to increase productivity and identify existing problems.

• Gained valuable experience on process flow and controls applied in a chemical plant. RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

• Published undergraduate thesis: Isobaric phase behavior of fluorinated compound. (Link)

• Published a paper on Isobaric phase behavior of alcohol compound classes. (Link)

• Published a recent paper demonstrating the increase in accuracy of predicting thermodynamic properties using MOSCED as compared to other models. (paper under review)
