The highest forms of understanding we can achieve are laughter and human compassion

Richard P. Feynman



I am a mechanical engineer focused on creating technology solutions to accelerate humanity's transition towards sustainable manufacturing and energy systems of the future.  I received my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Master's degree from the University of Florida, and Bachelor's degree from the University of Pune, all in mechanical engineering.  My current work as postdoctoral scholar at Argonne National Laboratory is on industrial gas-based "dry" technologies to substitute water intensive processes in the industry and on the use of smart technologies and analytics to achieve breakthrough leaps in material and energy productivity in high-value manufacturing industries. I also hold a fractional appointment as a research fellow at the University of Michigan, where I study carbon capture and negative emission pathways for climate change mitigation and adaptation. In my free time, I enjoy distance running, pottery, woodworking, and classical music.
