Process Design of Conversion of Wood Pellets into Dimethyl Ether (Fall 2016)

Designed a process to convert wood pellets into DME using General Electric gasifier.

Used kinetics to size the gasifier and synthesis reactor in the design

Designed a Heat Exchange Network to maximize efficiency of the process

Performed economic analysis to determine the financial costs of the project and its feasibility Analysis of Fluidized/Packed Bed Performance (Spring 2016)

Measured the pressure drop vs flow rate in a backed bed with various particle sizes and densities and used to Ergun equation to compare results to theory.

Performed similar analysis on a fluidized bed to determine minimum fluidization velocity Design of Control System for a Binary Distillation Column (Spring 2016)

Designed feedback and feedforward PID controllers to account for variations in feed flow rate and concentration and make distillate and bottoms meet spec and maximize recovery

Created a P&ID for the process


American Institute of Chemical Engineers: Secretary (April 2015-May 2016), Mentor (August 2015- December 2016), Member (August 2013-December 2016)

Organized various events including socials and info-sessions, including the AIChE national conference and represented the Berkeley chapter in the 2016 AIChE Western Regional Conference.

As secretary, designed a system with graduate students to link undergraduates to open research positions and created an official club newsletter to improve communication to members.

Mentored a group of underclassmen on classes, research and other college related activities ChemE Car: Member (August 2014-May 2016), Controls Team Lead (August 2015-May 2016)

Worked on designing a zinc-air battery shoebox car with an iodine clock control mechanism. E98: Surviving Berkeley Engineering: Instructor (August 2016-Present)

Taught incoming freshmen about professional development, extracurricular activities and life as an engineering student at Berkeley.
