Senior Materials Engineer
ABC Corporation, Materials Engineering, Miami, FL, 20xx-Present

Conducts research in detoxification of organic  pollutants using chelate based Fenton reaction such as monomeric  and polymeric chelating agent. The objective is to apply free  hydroxyl radical reaction at groundwater remediation. Chelating  agents were used for controlling free ferrous and ferric ion  concentration and preventing precipitation even at neutral pH  environment. The kinetics of these reactions was studied by  disappearance of parent compound and formation of chloride in  solution.

Key Accomplishments:

  • Effectively performed oxidation of  chlorinated aromatics by hydroxyl radicals in presence of  mono-chelate (citrate) or poly-chelate (polyacrylic acid) at neutral pH environment.

  • Strategically developed immobilization of  polyacrylic acid in solid support (membrane or  functionalized silica particles).

  • Productively established mechanism of  chelate based modified Fenton reaction and developed kinetic  models through numerical simulation.

  • Successfully illustrated the effective  dechlorination of carbon tetrachloride (could not be  oxidized by free hydroxyl radicals) by chelate based  modified Fenton reaction at neutral pH environment.

  • Mentored one REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) student in 20xx.

Materials Process Technician
BCD Refining Company, Miami, FL, 20xx-20xx

  • Played a key role in handling start-up and  shut-down for RCC (residue catalytic cracking) complex  including: Reaction, Fractionator, Alkylation, MTBE, Sulfur  Recovery and Wastewater Treatment Unit.

  • Strategically performed troubleshooting and optimization.

  • Worked closely with teams and provided training.

  • Successfully collaborated in work place safety programs.

Materials Engineer
CDE Petrochemical, Miami, FL, 20xx-20xx

  • Administered creation and production of rubber additive from RCC slurry oil.

  • Productively recognized corrosive characteristics of RCC gasoline.

  • Effectively associated and participated in startup and commission team for new RCC complex.
