To join a company and contribute using my process engineering and process development skills acquired while working in different manufacturing

(cGMP) environments as well as using data analysis to improve and optimize processes. SUMMARY OF SKILLS

• Process engineering was used to calculate brine flow rate and cooling rate to enhance the crystallizer and help in process development.

• Studied different manufacturing processes while working in different manufacturing environments to gain their working knowledge.

• Chemical reaction engineering was used to analyze the reaction data and find the reaction rate and order using MATLAB, Excel and graphs.

• Analytical techniques and skills including dissolution testing, hardness testing, tap density measurements, shear cell testing and weight variability analysis were used to improve Critical Quality Attributes of tablets.

• Designed the experiments for the roller compactor project and statistical data analysis for the tablet properties to study process parameters. TECHNICAL SKILLS
