About Me

Born and raised in India, I was born in Mumbai Ghatkopar Hospital (insanity anyone?) and raised in Mumbai, India. My family moved to Mumbai, India in the early ’70’s, and I attended University of Mumbai, India. In 2007 I graduated with my first professional degree B.E. in Civil Engineering. When I first graduated, I knew absolutely nothing. Armed with an engineering degree and approximately 70% retention of engineering principles, I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed engineer who realized I didn’t have the aptitude for indeterminate analysis. But that is what tables and references are for.

After graduation, I joined B.E.Billimoria & Co. Ltd as a Junior engineer. As an employee of the company, I was part of residential project G+23, Godrej Edenwoods, Regency Park Tower. As a Junior engineer, I handled several responsibilities ranging from design, reinforcement and form work inspection, quality control, soliciting subcontractors, defining scope, scheduling projects to material management, ERP software management etc. I have learned efficient time management as I was balancing concurrent work at the same time. My work experience has reinforced my decision to pursue a Structural Engineering from United States. In 2008 while my visa was in process I got big employment opportunity to work with Indiabulls Real Estate Pvt Ltd as Contract Engineer were I was part of prestigious project in the country One Indiabulls Center (Commercial IT Park- Green Building) were my work task implicated procurement of MEPC contracts, review of change orders, writing work scopes, prepare commercial and technical comparisons to award contracts. Overall understanding objectives were Project String and Planning & Scheduling through these work experience. In 2008 I arrived to United States to study Master’s of Civil Engineering were I Joined Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY. In Syracuse University I was exposed to the many facets of civil engineering and I have developed great interest in many of them from analysis, design of building, bridges and different retrofit system. My experience gained in the classroom has been instrumental to my development as a civil engineer through my exposure to design aspects in various projects. The projects I have worked on are detailed more fully in my portfolio. While doing my Master’s Degree I was also responsible as a Teaching Assistant at Syracuse University and also I completed 7 months Structural Internship Program with Hertel Steel Inc as Structural Engineering Intern which involves routine structural engineering entry level exercise. Used CAD Software for production of drawings. Through this internship experience I got the vision of Structural Drawings. In 2010 I completed my Master’s Degree with challenging research on Bridge Design which is Innovation talks in Bridge Industry with Dr. Riyad Aboutaha, Professor, Syracuse University. My Master’s studies experience have helped me to explore, innovate and apply ideas and learned different aspects of Structural Engineering. After my MSCE graduation I joined Ingalls & Associates LLP as Jr. Engineer responsibility Were I was accountable for duties associated with Structural Engineering tasks and Civil Site design. The experience has helped me to formulate engineering problems.
