Chemical Engineering Research Student September, 2014 – August, 2016 University of Waterloo Waterloo, ON, CANADA

Thesis: The Study Of Effects Of Design Modifications In Static Mixer Geometry For Laminar Flow Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Achievements: Developed new designs of static mixers, which impose 20 to 30% less pressure drop and give 30 to 40% more axial dispersion and distributive mixing as compared to standard commercially available static mixers. These static mixers are also shown to be used in polymerization process giving better results.

• Study the hydrodynamic behaviour and mixing performance of commercial static mixers (Kenics and SMX static mixer) in laminar flow region using COMSOL Multiphysics as a CFD software

• Designing of various static mixers geometries using AutoCAD software.

• Propose new designs and/or modifications to current static mixer geometries to improve the overall performance of static mixer at reduced cost

• Define a complete CFD model to carry out the simulations by coupling COMSOL software with MATLAB

• Application of new static mixer designs in manufacturing of polymers PROJECT: Teaching Assistant For Bachelor’s Students Subjects: Physical Chemistry, Mass Transfer Operations, Process Control.

• Excellent knowledge of subjects mentioned above

• Managing course related administrative work for each term

• Dedicated office hours for students to help in understanding the course material better and provide them correct direction in solving assignments

• Grading exams and assignments

Graduate Operations Engineer July 2013 – June 2014 Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) Jamnagar, GJ, INDIA Achievements: Within 1 year, worked with production units of two plants of world’s largest grass-root refinery. After successfully working in CFP, as a part of training, I was given an opportunity to work in Aromatics plant as a part of company’s new commissioning project worth of $15B.

• On field training in Clean Fuel Plant(CFP) and Aromatics Plant of world’s largest oil and gas refinery

• Learnt the plant operations of Selective Catalyst Naphtha Refining Unit and Heavy Naphtha Unifier Unit

• Responsible for continuous co-ordination with panel operators and field executives to carry out the routine field jobs
