Industry Experience

2012 - 2014

Shell, Houston, TX

Optimization Engineer in the Process Automation, Control, and Optimization (PACO) group

While at Shell, I worked in dynamic process simulation. We answered questions and troubleshot problems that couldn't be addressed using steady-state simulation. I contributed to projects involving process safety, energy efficiency, and multi-phase flow.

I also managed reliability, availability, and maintainability (RAM) studies. We used Monte Carlo simulations to estimate the expected downtime of projects, as well as to help inform project decision-making.
