Executive Summary
Ojasvi is currently an assistant professor at the department of chemical engineering, Shiv Nadar University (SNU). He has obtained his Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur where his thesis presents different case studies on design and control strategies for robust economic process operation on realistic example chemical processes. The highlights of his thesis are specific key process operability issues and to develop general guidelines where possible. Earlier, he has worked at National Metallurgical Laboratory (CSIR) where he contributed on the recovery of valuable metals from polymettalic sea nodules through hydrometallurgical routes.
His research work has a strong industrial focus and he has published articles from his research findings in peer reviewed, top quality chemical engineering journals.
