I am a mechanical engineer focused on creating technology and policy solutions for humanity's transition towards sustainable manufacturing and energy systems.  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 a Systems Scientist 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.  In my free time, I enjoy distance running, pottery, woodworking, and classical music.
