His PhD work focused on the understanding of underlying thermochemistry and kinetics of Si nanoparticle formation. He was awarded an NSF International Research and Education in Engineering (IREE) Fellowship to study with Prof. Guy Marin for 18 months at the Laboratory for Chemical Technology of Ghent University in Belgium.

He then worked as a research associate with Chemistry Nobel Laureate Arieh Warshel at the University of Southern California (USC) further refining his multi-scale modeling skills in the field of biochemistry, particularly enzymatic catalysis. After USC, he joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a research associate co-advised by Profs. William Green, Paul Barton, and Youssef Marzouk contributing to BP-Amoco and Saudi‑Aramco funded research for multi-scale petrochemical reactor model development.
