Purdue University





I'm a final year undergraduate at BITS Pilani, India. Presently, I'm working as a research assistant at Purdue University and have worked on a couple of research projects in the fields or materials and heterogeneous catalysis. My research interests include materials, heterogeneous catalysis, reaction engineering, petroleum refining processes, and computational modeling. At Purdue, I'm working on synthesizing and characterizing catalysts for methanol fuel cells, and conversion of methane and CO2 in shale gas to higher hydrocarbons. I'm also developing an ML model to maximize the yield for this conversion. My best skills are SEM, TEM, XRD, BET, Aspen, AutoCAD P&ID, Machine Learning; process design, simulation, and optimization. On a personal note, I have been part of several extra-curricular activities at my undergrad university. I love running, soccer, biking, graphic designing, photography, traveling, and cooking Chinese.
