I am a systems engineer focused on solving enviro-socio-economic challenges associated with managing carbon emissions in a rapidly changing climate using novel technologies and sound policy measures. I received my Ph.D. from University of Michigan, Master's degree from University of Florida, and Bachelor's degree from University of Pune, all in Mechanical Engineering. My current work as post-doctoral fellow in the Environmental and Sustainable Technologies Lab (EASTlab) is on carbon dioxide recovery, reuse, and mitigation. Other interests of mine include classical music, guitar, cooking, photography, ceramic arts, woodworking, and distance running.
