Process Engineer Intern/ Co-Op June’17- Current

Applied Materials, Sunnyvale, CA

• Working on a new epitaxial tool for improving uniformity and selectivity across silicon wafer during epitaxial growth.

• Designing experiments for process development on epi chamber. Use of Metrology tools (Ellipsometry & XRD) and associated data analysis.

• Leading cross functional teams (software & hardware) to troubleshooting process related issues. Also helping simulation team with application development for above mentioned process. Process Engineer/Graduate Engineer Trainee July’15 – June’16 Hindalco Industries Limited, Aditya Birla Group, Renukoot, India

• Led project execution, worked closely with R&D team for new product development, current process improvement and customer support.

• Introduced a novel idea of pictorial standard operating procedure (SOP) for all machine in the plant and successfully commissioned that.

• Defect identification, failure analysis, yield analysis, diagnosis and minimization of defects in Aluminum (Al) flat rolled products using tools as why-why analysis, Corrective action Preventive Action (CAPA), root cause analysis.

• Six Sigma-Green Belt project on heavy ends level control in oil used for cold rolling process of Al manufacturing. Analyzed data statistically using fishbone diagram, control chart, regression analysis and gauge R&R tools to study the effect of vital causes. Sustained oil quality by prolonging oil top-up cycle from 3 days to 6 days. That led to cost reduction of 1.2 million rupees per annum to Al manufacturing cost. STUDENT ASSISTANTSHIP

Lab Instructor at Materials Engineering Dept., San Jose State University, CA, USA Jan’ 17 – May’17

• Lab assistant for MatE-153 lab ‘Electronic Magnetic and optical properties of materials’.

• Held a lecture every week to explain concepts and guided student for experiments including quizzes, midterm and oral presentations. Instructional Student Assistant at Materials Engineering Dept., San Jose State University, CA, USA Aug’16 –Current

• Graded quizzes, assignments and homework; assisted class to understand the mathematical equations.

• Working with Dr. Pan and Dr. Oye as grader for MatE153 Lectures. Teaching Assistant at Department of Metallurgical Engineering, IIT (BHU) Varanasi, India July’14– April ‘15 INTERNSHIP AND RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

Recovery of lead from lead acid battery slag Jan’14 – Dec’14 B.Tech Project at Department of Metallurgical Engineering, IIT (BHU) Varanasi, India

• Maximized the recovery of lead from slag obtained after pyro metallurgical reduction of used lead acid batteries.

• Optimized reduction conditions such as reduction temperature, time and carbon content to achieve a cost and energy efficient process. Imaging of nanoparticles by Ion and Electron Microscopy May’14 – July’14 Research Assistant at Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar, India

• Imaging of gold and silver nanoparticles embedded on silicon matrix by focused ion beam and electron beam microscopy.

• Standardized the conditions for focused ion beam, analyzed data using Monte Carlo simulation technique. Microstructural Characterization of Hot Rolled ‘B’ and ‘C’ modified Ti alpha alloy May’13 – July’13 Summer Internship at Defense Metallurgical Research Laboratory, Hyderabad, India

• Worked closely with defense lab scientists to solve real case project on modifying the physical and mechanical properties of alpha Ti alloy.

• Analysis of the cross section and surface part of samples were separately performed by characterization techniques as SEM, EBSD, and XRD. OTHER ACHIEVEMENTS

• Professional Development Committee chair for Young Professional Network at Applied materials, Santa Clara.

• Program committee member and student leader for IEEE- Reliability society Santa Clara valley chapter.
