A highly motivated, versatile, goal-oriented PhD candidate in chemical engineering with 4+ years of research experience in computational modeling, fluid particle simulation and statistical analyzes of turbulent fluid flow, seeking suitable challenging employment opportunities.
Employment History
Graduate Research Assistant August 2007 - September 2012
CBME, University of Oklahoma
Norman, Oklahoma, USA
Developed proprietary algorithms, performed grid independence analysis and solved turbulent flow equations using Computational Fluid Dynamics and numerical methods, to obtain pioneering high-resolution data of turbulent flow fields at high Reynolds numbers. Utilized MPI, OPENMP parallelization modules to optimize the proprietary computational algorithm and achieved 80% reduction in physical time required for computation. Innovatively formulated a state-of-the-art particle model to study turbulent heat and mass transport. Explored the intricacies involved in turbulent drag reduction using computational modeling and simulation. Developed insights, using statistical tools, about practical flow situations occurring in turbulent dispersion, turbulent mixing and in turbulent boundary layer flows. Mentored research assistants in the Computational Transport Processes laboratory.
Graduate Teaching Assistant August 2007 - May 2010
CBME, University of Oklahoma
Norman, Oklahoma, USA
Mentored 3 Capstone project teams in Advanced Process Design. Tutored and evaluated an undergraduate class of 45 students in process Design I, Advanced Process Design and Chemical Kinetics courses.
Research Intern Feb 2007 - May 2007
