I am currently finishing my last year of doctoral program with the Centre for Risk, Integrity and Safety Engineering (C-RISE) and the Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science at Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's NL, Canada.
I have 3 years of field experience with a multinational petrochemical company where I Provided production engineering expertise among a multi-disciplinary team to startup the production unit, monitor and analyze the process flow. Participate in production field operations with operators to ensure integrity management, real-time condition monitoring and proper safety practices.
Previously I worked over one year in the pharmaceutical production field, where I developed my technical and management's skills within an international environment.
My expertise area is mainly accident modeling, Risk analysis, safety & reliability assessment.
