My story is simple, I started out liking chemistry and then merged into engineering. In 2008, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Akron. This degree came with a minor in Chemistry and a Certificate in Polymer Science. However, along the way I started working and studying in the bio fields.
Shortly after graduation and taking a summer off to relax, I began a PhD program in Chemical Engineering with a focus in BioProcess Engineering. This past May, the PhD was finished with a successful dissertation on how fungal morphology and nutrient limitation can improve enzyme production and reduce manufacturing costs.
I have worked on enzyme production, fungal morphology, soy protein processing, algae oil production, biosurfactants, bioplastics, and a number of analytical techniques. Checkout our group research group website at UAkron.edu.or my Research page to see some of my PhD work.
Free time… yes, there are a few hours every day left… look for the Projects page to see what occupies my free time…
