I am a Lecturer at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular EngineeringNational University of Singapore (NUS).

Before joining the department, I was a research fellow at Minerals, Metals and Materials Technology Centre (M3TC), National Univesity of Singapore from September 2009 to March 2013. At M3TC, I worked on drying of low rank coal under the guidance of Prof Arun Mujumdar (then Professor of Mechanical Engineering at NUS), famously known as Drying Guru.

I received my PhD in Chemical Engineering in 2009 from Institute of Chemical Technology (Formerely known as UDCT), Mumbai, India. My PhD theses was on "Design and Experimental Analysis of Industrial Drying Systems" advised by Prof. Bhaskar N Thorat (ICT, Mumbai, India). In 2005, I completed master of chemical engineering (M Chem Engg.) from Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, India and my bachelors degree is in Petrochemical Engineering from Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University (BATU), Lonere, Raigad, India in May 2003.

Since 2011, I am serving as an Assistant Editor of Drying Technology - An International Journal (2012 Impact factor 1.814).
