I am a chemical engineer with a strong background in concrete admixtures and cement chemistry. Currently, I am working at the Research Institutes of Sweden, Stockholm, Sweden.
I have received my B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Pune University, India and MS and PhD in Chemical Engineering in the area of Concrete Admixtures from Tennessee Technological University, Tennessee, USA. After graduation, I worked as a Research Scientist in the Product Development group at The QUIKRETE Companies, Atlanta, USA.
My research interest includes sustainable concrete repair products, concrete admixtures, and hydration chemistry of portland cement and alternative cementitious binders.
My current research focuses on the R&D of sustainable and advanced construction products such as high conductivity geothermal grouts, fast set tunnel mortars, cementitious products with phase change materials (PCMs).
