PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

DOW CHEMICAL

May 2015 – August 2015

Chemical Engineer

•Optimized the process and formulations to make a Polyurethane based sealant to replace silicone sealants

•Designed several experimental studies to understand the effect of different variables on the properties of sealants and developed correlations to make formulation parameters for the Polyurethane sealant

•Adjusted polyol equivalent weights, functionality, and type of capping to:

oIncreased Compliance of Sealants by 60%.

oReduced the gel-time and tack-free time by 50%.

•Communicated with the commercial and Technical Sales personal about the progress of the project

•Presented findings and recommendations to Polyurethane R&D and Commercial leadership

SPECIAL PROJECTS:

Level Control on Water Tank & Temperature Control on Heat Exchanger

•Observed the dynamic response and properly tuned the controller using PID parameters and PI parameters, respectively

•Compared trial-and-error values and calculated values

Heat Balances and Heat Exchanger Troubleshooting

•Calculated overall heat transfer coefficient of shell and tube heat exchanger

•Investigated the reasons of low heat transfer coefficient of the heat exchanger

•Identified the thermocouple that was malfunctioning

Batch Reactor Optimization

•Developed a kinetic profile and from that determined the rate constant and reaction order

•Used the model to optimize the reactor condition and reduced the batch time

Lab-Scale Distillation

•Scaled down a plant scale distillation column to determine if our lab scale distillation column could be used to simulate industrial operation and optimized the column operation

•Compared the efficiencies of sieve and bubble cap trays and the calculations with the experimental data

LEADERSHIP POSITIONS

APO Vice President of Finance (2015)

•Planned balanced budgets and decreased the Receivable Balance Fraction

•Conducted fundraising events and increased the revenues by 10 percent

Captain of Brazoswood Varsity Basketball Team (2012-2013)

Choir Officer of Brazoswood Varsity Choir, All-Region First Tenor (2012-2013)

COMPUTER SKILLS

Strong background in ChE software (Aspen, Honeywell Experion, Polymath, Matlab, Microsoft Excel), Math Modelling and Computer programming and use of these tools for process troubleshooting
