Experience

  • Project Engineer

    at Exxon Mobil

    September 2016 - at Present

    Arkansas

    My main responsibility is to support Midstream Operations, in particularly assist with maintenance of terminal process and equipment to ensure that day-to-day operations are completed in a timely and cost effective method. I have been a Project Manager and Project Engineer for 7 to 8 concurrent projects, which ranged from $0.2 to $1MM in capital value. My duties begin with the planning of the project and continue on to project development, procurement of resources, and finishing the projects, which include improving a current equipment or process to the installation and commissioning of a new process/equipment. During the course of the projects, I am heavily involved with process equipment calculations, design reviews, hazard analysis, HAZOP, and MOC along with the Operations team and Subject Matter Experts. With every project, performing safely, which is inclusive of both operational safety and process safety, is given the utmost priority to ensure that no one gets hurt.

  • Research Associate - Optimization and Process Control

    at Oklahoma State University

    July 2015 - April 2016

    Oklahoma

    • Assisted in the development of the theoretical analysis of incremental parameterization – online (IMPOL). • The IMPOL is a method to update the model to match the process in a process-model based control (PMBC). • Application of leapfrogging to non-linear regression modeling and first principles models.

  • Research Associate - Thermodynamics

    at Oklahoma State University

    August 2012 - July 2015

    Oklahoma

    • Assessed and compared the ability of commonly used activity coefficient models (UNIFAC, NRTL, etc.) in representing fluid phase behavior widely seen in the oil and gas industry. • Applied fundamental engineering tools and concepts (such as Design for, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis, Root Cause Analysis) to equipment design, in order to improve quality, costs, efficiencies, or fitness for use. • Developed generalized models for binary interaction parameters with Peng-Robinson EOS and Wong-Sandler (WS) mixing rules for VLE predictions relevant to industrial processes such as oil and gas recovery, CO2 sequestration, and supercritical fluid extraction.

  • Senior Project Associate

    at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur

    August 2010 - July 2012

    Kanpur Dehat - Uttar Pradesh

    • Provided engineering expertise to maintain and improve throughput, uptime, quality, and cost, to help plants achieve best practice in all areas. • Executed assigned capital projects through management of all components of the project from scope development through commissioning, training, operation and documentation. • Being primary owner of process improvements and productivity, lead the reviews and analysis of the key metrics related to cost control and productivity. Also, in formulation of new opportunities for process improvement.
