Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ September 2016 – May 2018 MS, Chemical Engineering GPA: 3.72

Courses: Lean-six sigma, Advance Transport Phenomena, Pharma Unit Operations, Analytical Methods, Kinetics, catalysis and reactor design, Project Management, Statistical design of Pharma operations. Dharmsinh Desai University, India July 2010 - May 2014 Bachelor of Technology, Chemical Engineering GPA: 8.67/10 Courses: Heat and mass transfer, Fluid flow operations, Computer Aided Design, Environmental engineering, Chemical system modelling, Plant economics and design, Process control, Material science and safety. PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

Aurolife Pharma LLC, Dayton, NJ June 2017- December 2017 Intern, Manufacturing

Worked proactively to reduce the batch time and increase the productivity through process improvements in manufacturing operations like Granulation, Drying, Blending, Compression, and Coating.

Supported daily production activities, addressing the potential issues affecting the productivity and worked independently as well as in cross-functional teams towards solving those issues in a cGMP environment.

Led projects and provided suggestions to reduce the batch drying time and hence improve the productivity. Gujarat State Fertilizers and Chemicals Limited, Vadodara, India May 2014 - August 2016 Plant engineer, Caprolactam manufacturing plant

Involved in process related troubleshooting, waste reduction, process safety and environmental concerns for a lean, smoother, and efficient operation of the plant with Continuous Process Improvements.

Efficiently maintained and monitored the plant parameters, specific consumption of raw materials and product quality on a continuous basis for achieving the agreed production target of 22000 MT in a year.

Consistently maintained the product quality of caprolactam to around 20,000 PN number. Transpek Industry Limited, Vadodara, India December 2013 - January 2014 Intern, Sulfuric acid manufacturing plant

Understanding the sulfuric acid manufacturing process, material balance, energy balance and equipment designs for a project on process design of sulfuric acid plant.


Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey January 2017 -May 2018

Observing solution behavior of Ionomer SPS-Na dissolved in organic solvents in presence of ionic liquids through Viscosity, Conductivity and DLS experiments.


Modelling of cellulose hydrolysis by processive cellulases: Developed a MATLAB code to work on a kinetic model of cellulose hydrolysis by processive cellulases to explain the difference in experimental behaviour for cellulose I (native cellulose) and cellulose III (non-native) which was shown by multiple changes in rate constants.

Process design of a sulfuric acid plant for a capacity of 150 MT/day: This included market analysis of sulfuric acid, selection of efficient process, material balance calculations, energy balance calculations, equipment design, cost estimation and payback period calculations. SKILLS:

Technical: Lean-six sigma Yellow and Green belt, MATLAB, HYSYS, SAP, MS office, Project management. Soft Skills: Languages (English, Hindi, Gujarati), strong interpersonal and communication skills, problem-solving skills. ACTIVITIES:

Proctoring at Office of Disability Services, Rutgers University September 2016 – May 2018

Learning assistant, Process engineering lab, Chemical Engineering department, Rutgers. September 2016 – May 2018

Member of runner up team at Rutgers Intramural soccer league. February 2017
