PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

INVISTA S.A.R.L. ORANGE, TEXAS

PROCESS ENGINEER (CONTRACT) APRIL 2012-DECEMBER 2012

Sizing and selecting relief devices utilizing API and ASME standards.

P&I development and use.

Material and energy balance interpretation and development.

GLOBAL HEAVY CHEMICALS LTD. DHAKA, BANGLADESH A $ 150 MM sister company of the Opsonin Group, and the largest employer of engineers in Bangladesh. The first and largest Chlor-Alkali facility in Bangladesh, producing caustic soda, liquid chlorine, hydrochloric acid and other chlorine derivatives for local and international demand.

PROCESS ENGINEER 2007–2009

Managed daily operations of Chlor-Alkali manufacturing plant. Closely monitored DCS for brine purification process; inspected and coordinated maintenance work; and repaired equipment. Spearheaded and delegated the tasks of 20 technicians. Worked collaboratively with other groups and top managers to optimize plant operations. Reason for leaving: Pursuit of advanced education in US, for greater industrial, technical and interpersonal challenge.

Reduced manufacturing costs by 5% through efficient use of raw materials and utilities, reduction of labor hours, and waste minimization.

Reduced plant trips (unanticipated shutdowns) by 25% through statistical analysis of equipment failure data, identifying root causes and implementing preventive maintenance measures for vital equipment.

Increased first-time-right product quality from 88 % to 93% through hands-on, day-to-day assistance to production.

Reduced injuries by 8% in two years, by increasing safety measures and reducing frequency of chlorine gas leakages

Increased productivity of brine purification process by incorporating plant wide quality improvements and increasing on-stream factor from 94% to 96%.

Teamed up with project design engineers and operation engineers to develop a $600K CO2 absorber for exhaust gases. Project was implemented in 2009, and is reportedly working well, at the designed 90% efficiency.

Gained extensive experience in ABB DCS operation, implementing process changes, new monitoring modes, control schemes and loop parameters. Coached new operators on means of monitoring key DCS variables.

Maintained process PFD’s and P & ID’s for two process units and all associated OSBL.

OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY ADVANCED MATERIAL SCIENCE LABORATORY

INSTRUCTOR/TEACHING ASSISTANT/EDUCATIONAL MENTOR AUGUST 2009–DECEMBER 2011

Directed multiple laboratory activities to meet students’ need and curriculum requirements. Trained and mentored students in basic and advanced material science experimental testing methods and operating equipment.
