I am an engineer at the Corporate Engineering Technologies Laboratories (CETL) of the Procter & Gamble Company. At Procter & Gamble, my responsibilities include applying state-of-the-art mathematical modeling and experimental tools to solve problems (mixing, segregation, agglomeration etc.) related to particulate and complex fluids that produce solid products (brands like, Duracell, Cascade, Tide, Ariel, Pampers, Vicks etc.) for the consumer product industry. I am also responsible for building and fostering relationships with academia and research laboratories to keep P&G at the forefront of particle technology.
My present and future career interests are in the area of:
1) Modeling/simulation and experiments of particulate/multiphase and complex flows
2) Building tools (both computational and experimental) to understand and mitigate segregation (de-mixing) challenges of solid particles
3) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
I was born and raised in Bhilai Nagar, India, a small city in the central part of India. Then I lived in Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) and Bangalore for couple of years before moving to USA in August 2007. Other than enjoying my work, I love going for long drives, swimming, running, biking and watching "The Big Bang Theory".
