I was born and raised in Tamil Nadu, home to the best cuisine in India. Before coming to KU, I worked as a process engineer in Holcim Ltd. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Trichy. I am currently pursuing my Master’s in Petroleum Engineering under the guidance of Dr. Reza Barati and my research focuses on the Polyelectrolyte Complex Stabilized CO2 Foam Systems for Hydraulic Fracturing Application. In addition to research, I was a teaching assistant for Drilling and Well Completion, Reservoir Engineering, Waterflooding and I am currently a GTA for Petroleum Engineering Laboratory. In my free time, I enjoy swimming and listening to melody. After graduation, I would like to be a Reservoir Engineer.
