My degrees are in chemical engineering and my research training is primarily in process control and systems engineering. I have academic experience in India, the USA and Canada and industrial experience in India and the USA.
My research focuses on process systems engineering, including multiscale modeling, process estimation and monitoring, advanced control and optimization. The analysis of complex systems based on machine learning, data mining and graph/network-based approaches is of particular interest. The application areas of the research include chemoinformatics, real-time monitoring of complex reacting mixtures, reservoir engineering, froth flotation, biomass conversion, heterogeneous catalysis, CO2 capture and microalgal processes.
Keywords: Process Control, Process Systems Engineering, Machine learning, Data analytics, Big data, Reaction engineering, Chemoinformatics, Reservoir engineering, Froth flotation, CO2 capture
CME 483 - Colloquium II
Oral presentation of technical material. Graded on a pass/fail basis. Prerequisite: CME 481. Credit may not be obtained in this course if previous credit has been obtained for CH E 483.
CME 600 - Introduction to Research Methods
This course provides an introduction to research methods specific to engineering disciplines. Topics covered include the philosophy of science and engineering, the scientific method, hypothesis-based research, statistical analysis, literature search and review, developing a research plan, research presentation and reporting, and best practices in experimental, theoretical and computational research. Restricted to graduate students in the Faculty of Engineering. Students from departments other than Chemical and Materials Engineering require instructor approval to register.
