Research Experience:-

1. Current Research:
Currently I am working on 'Biodiesel production from microalgae using ionic liquid catalyst in ultrasonic assisted reactor (Government of India sponsored)'. At the same time, my current research also focuses on process intensification to achieve maximum profit and minimum energy consumption. I am also working on the plantwide control of several chemical processes, such as biodiesel, formic acid, ethyl levulinate etc.

2. PhD Research:-
Duration: From Oct 12 June 15
Two biodiesel production processes (both involving acid esterification and alkali transesterification) were simulated realistically and compared for economic and environmental objectives: profit, heat duty and organic waste. An Excel-based multi-objective optimization (EMOO) program for the elitist non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA-II) was used to determine Pareto-optimal fronts. Subsequently, a suitable PWC system was developed for the better biodiesel process using the integrated framework of simulation and heuristics (IFSH) and its performance was tested for several plantwide performance criteria. Finally, an operator training simulator (OTS) was developed for the biodiesel process to train the operators for startups and several emergency situations.

3. Worked in a team on ‘design, modeling, simulation and cost analysis of CO2 removal from synthesis gas using mixed amine solution’. [TNB Research Sdn. Bhd. Malaysia (259519-A) – A wholly owned subsidiary of TNB RESEARCH SDN. BHD]
Duration: From Jan 13 to April 13
Our team was involved in design, modeling and simulation of a plant for removing CO2 from synthesis gas using the mixed amine solution. We proposed suitable operating conditions in order to absorb maximum CO2 in mixed amine solution. Subsequently, we were responsible for the preliminary cost analysis of the plant.

4. Worked as Senior Research Fellow at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur (BARC sponsored project entitled ‘Design, Modeling and Control of High Pressure Pilot Scale HIX Reactive Distillation’)
Duration: From 06/08/2010 to 31/01/2012
The main objective of the work was to develop and simulate equilibrium and non-equilibrium models for high pressure pilot scale HIX (a mixture of HI, I2 and H2O) reactive distillation unit. The main challenge was to propose a suitable thermodynamic model considering the complex behavior of feed components and insufficient experimental data. The developed models were simulated using Aspen Plus, considering e-NRTL property method. The binary interaction parameters were determined using genetic algorithm optimization as well as Aspen Plus Data Regression tool.

His biography has been included in Who-is-Who in the world since 2005 and Who-is-Who in science since 2011. He is the major author or coauthor of 42 published articles in scientific journals, two that have already been submitted for publication, and three more that are under preparation. He is also the author or coauthor of 27 papers in conference proceedings. He has given 9 invited lectures and 101 presentations in International, American, European and Greek scientific congresses. He is also a member of the Editorial Board of ISRN Applied Mathematics since March 2011, Mathematical Problems in Engineering since July 2012, Journal of Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Sciences, since October 2017, and very recently of the International Journal of
Bioprocessing and Biotechniques. Moreover, he is a reviewer for 39 scientific journals, and three
