Without my parents encouragement and support, I would have not come so far. As I was able to score 92% marks in chemistry in HSC, I selected chemical engineering as my undergraduate major at Datta Meghe College of engineering, Airoli. This program laid the foundation desired for my goals; I Qualified GATE 2011 in Chemical engineering and was offered an opportunity to be a part of chemical engineering department for pursuing Master of Technology at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. I worked on project sponsored by GAIL for my master thesis under the supervision of Prof. Swati Neogi at Composite application laboratory (CAL, IIT Kharagpur). At IIT B-Monash, I will be working under the supervision of (in no particular sequence) Prof. Debabrata Maiti, Prof. AK Suresh and Prof. Chaffee Alan on the project titled, Develop a micro-kinetic model framework for heterogeneously catalyzed reaction Direct Aromatization of Methane.
