OVERVIEW

I hold a Bachelor’s of Engineering in Chemical Engineering from University of Mumbai & a Master’s of Engineering in Energy System Engineering from the National University of Ireland. My research focuses on opportunities that exist in forestry residues for the production of bio-based chemicals & fuels in Ireland. My work is closely associated with Coillte (State forestry department) but has the potential to grow to private forestry sectors. My project also involves designing a mapping tool using ArcGIS for suitable site selection of biorefineries in Ireland.
