Chemistry Alumni

I graduated from University of Wyoming specializing in electrochemistry in 2005. I currently work as a Research Scientist at Hach Company in Loveland, Colorado.  At Hach Company we develop sensors and chemistries to ensure the quality of water.  The products and services that we provide target water matrices ranging from ultra-pure water to waste water.  I have been involved in various projects that are focused on research & development of sensors, instruments and chemistries for measuring pH, conductivity, total organic carbon, chlorine and chemical oxygen demand.  Our team also performs evaluations of technologies that are developed by open innovation partners.  Recently I completed my Professional MBA degree to understand how our products and technologies fit into the real world.

Before joining Hach Company I was a Post Doctoral Associate at Missouri University of Science and Technology for two years.  There I studied the lead (Pb) contamination in drinking water.  The reaction between commonly used disinfectants (chlorine and monochloramine) and lead (Pb) were studied using various electrochemical techniques.  Different material characterization techniques were used to analyze the effect of disinfectants on lead pipes.

The training I obtained from University of Wyoming has provided me with excellent analytical skills to research and develop products that are critical to ensure the safety and quality of water.  The intellectual and cultural discussions with fellow graduate students during my stay at UWYO have coached me to get the best out of the cultural differences between India and US.  The talented faculty of Department of Chemistry at UWYO and the serene setting of Laramie have given me the opportunity to greatly appreciate both nature and science.  This has helped me to enjoy my scientific work and my backpacking trips up the Rocky mountains with my family.
