Professional Summary
(Word Format - Click to download)
Advanced Energy Consortium (AEC) is a consortium of leading energy companies and global academic institutions facilitating pre-competitive research in nanotechnology with the potential to enhance the recovery of petroleum and gas from existing depleted reservoir. As a project manager for the AEC, I am responsible for managing the funding, implementation, administration and reporting of awarded research studies. Drawing on biomedical applications, my research portfolios are focused on synthesis and characterization of passive and active molecular and nanoparticles as contrast agents and nano-molecular sensors (magnetic, functionalized, catalytic, nanobots, quantum dots, SWNT, MWNT) with selective oil seeking properties to enable "illumination" of reservoirs.
