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.
