Unique combination of expertise in working with Industry, Consultancy, Academic and R&D establishments in the areas of Design, Research, Development and Training. Dealt with wide range of complex engineering problems, some of them are

• Energy analysis experience of industrial processes using first and second law of thermodynamics principles. Majority of my PhD and post PhD work was based on Exergy analysis of process industries.

• Energy Audit studies carried-out for 75 heat systems of chemical and Process industries of Fertilizers, Pharmaceuticals, Cement, Diary, Refineries, Sugar, Ceramic and Textile

• Assessed waste heat recovery at low temperatures and integration with solar thermal energy systems and devices in 36 process industries.

• As Director NDRF, Instrumental in creating networking of R&D Labs, Institutions, and Industries.

• Initiated number of activities in emerging technologies such as Micro and Nano systems, MEMS, MAVs, Quantemwells, and Biosensors etc.

• An extensive research analysis was carried out on fuel cell systems. One of the projects was “A study on Hydrogen recovery and potential for Fuel cell applications in process industries”. As part of design and development of PEM Fuel cells, numerical modeling & design optimization of PEMFC was carried out.

• At University of Kentucky working on incorporating steam traps and super heated steam modeling capabilities to the popular Pipe2000-Steam software package that is capable of analyzing large-scale steam distribution networks in addition to a Department of Energy funded “Kentucky Research Consortium for Energy and Environment” project.
