About - I am an alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology and winner of Summer Undergraduate Research Award at IIT Delhi. I am currently working at the R&D centre of Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd.,India, where I am responsible for looking after the biotechnological aspects of process development for production of 2nd Generation bio-fuels. Being the only biotechnologist in the R&D centre at BPCL, my present work experience has been more like an entrepreneurial journey. I am keenly interested in application of biotechnology to source untapped sustainable bio energy. I have worked on projects on micro-algal photo-bioreactors and biological fuel cells and I am currently working on projects related to bio-ethanol and bio-butanol. I believe that such a holistic understanding will be instrumental in planning an efficient consolidated bio refinery.
