JOB EXPERIENCE

Trainee Chemical Engineer (Production)                                             2003-2004
Mangalore Chemicals and Fertilizers Limited, India

MANUSCRIPT

   Development of a scalable model for predicting Arsenic oxidation and adsorption at
    Pyrolusite surfaces. (In process of submission for publication)
    Tanja Radu, Anjani Kumar, Gautham Jeppu, Prabhakar Clement, and Mark O. Barnett.

MASTER’S PROJECT

   Study of TCE degradation by Zerovalent Iron Nanoparticles; lab experiments and
    numerical modeling
    Advisors: Dr. T.P. Clement, Dr. Dongye Zhao. Co-worker: Dr Sung Hee Joo
    Due to their very high surface areas and reactivity, Zerovalent Iron nanoparticles have
    proved to be effective in lab scale for DNAPL degradation. In a recent research paper by
    Auburn University researchers, Dr Zhao and Feng (2004), a method for synthesizing highly
    reactive palladized iron (Fe-Pd) nanoparticles using starch as a stabilizer has been
    established in Auburn University. In batch experiments these nanoparticles were able to
    degrade more than 98% of TCE in less than 1 hour. Now column scale degradation of TCE
    by these nanoparticles is being investigated. The equations governing dissolution, transport
    and degradation of TCE are modeled by a finite difference code. The project expected to
    be completed by summer 2006.
UNDERGRADUATE PROJECTS

   Photochemical Oxidation of Organic Wastes
    Advior: Dr. C. Srinivas
    Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Trombay, Mumbai.
    The project involved a novel Photochemical Oxidation process for organic waste
    degradation in nuclear industry. The process is based on generation of highly reactive
    hydroxyl radical intermediates by the action of UV/visible light on hydrogen peroxide in the
    presence of catalysts. Pilot scale experiments were conducted in a tubular batch recycle
    type photoreactor. The studies conclusively demonstrated the feasibility of Mineralization as
    a cleaner alternative method for organic waste disposal.

   Activated Sludge Process
    Advisors: Prof. Gopal Mugeraya. Coworkers: S. Mukherjee, P. Mishra
    Department of Chemical Engineering, NITK, Surathkal
    Batch activated sludge process was conducted in lab and the COD reduction was studied.
    The following aspects were investigated: Primary settling with Polyelectrolytes and Alum,
    the effect of pH, mass transfer resistance effects of surfactants during aeration, effects of
    coagulant and flocculent dosage on settling rate and sludge density.
