I am pleased to recommend Mr. Gautham Jeppu as a candidate for PhD program. I have worked
with Gautham in my position as a Post Doctoral Fellow at the department of Civil Engineering,
Auburn University during the past six months.
While being a master’s student in Auburn University, he has been assisting me on a project for
DNAPL remediation using Zerovalent Iron nanoparticles. He is involved in the column scale
experiments and modeling of the project. He has accomplished his jobs in laboratory and
numerical modeling with great initiative and a very positive attitude. He has excellent written
and verbal communication skills, is extremely organized, and reliable.
Gautham would be a great asset to your program and I recommend him to you without
reservation. If you have any further questions with regard to his background or qualifications,
please do not hesitate to contact me.

Dr Saundeers ,
I am a master's student in the department of Civil Engineering at
Auburn University, AL under Dr. Prabhakar Clement. My master's project
focuses on experiments and numerical modeling of DNAPL dissolution and
degradation using Zerovalent Iron nanoparticles. I will be graduating by
summer 2006 and am interested in pursuing my doctoral degree in a field
related to my master's project. I was considering applying to Clarkson
University for a PhD.
I went through your research in the field of subsurface remediation
during the course of my masters work. Especially your works on transport
and fate of mercury, and other contaminants, in riverine,
estuarine and marine waters and sedimentetc
My undergraduate major was in Chemical Engineering in Karnataka
National Institute of Technology, Surathkal,(Former REC, Surathkal)
ranked among top ten engineering colleges in India.
GRE score: Verbal: 650, Quantitative: 780, Writing: 4.0
Masters GPA: 3.85
Bachelors GPA: 3.77
My under graduate project was on activated sludge process. I have also
done a project on Advanced Oxidation Process for Organic Waste Treatment
in Bhabha Atomic Research Laboratory, Trombay, wherein I got
familiarized with Photochemical and Ultrasonic methods for organic waste
treatment. I have one year of job experience as a trainee chemical
engineer (Production) for Mangalore Chemicals and Fertilizers Limited.
I am attaching my detailed resume for your kind perusal.
I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.
