Impact of climate change, using ASPEN plus, exergy analysis on flow-sheeting software

I learned the dangers associated with climate change, the importance of the energy sector, how to develop a simulation using ASPEN plus, how to conduct a second law thermodynamic analysis (exergy analysis) on a thermal plant simulated with flow sheeting software such as ASPEN plus.


Conducting research

The first thing I do is to get up-to-date with data collected and note down relevant items that need to be attended to. Other tasks can very depending on the stage at which our research projects are at but can include: sending confidentiality letters for research topics coming up, monitoring emails that come into the Economic Research inbox and responding to enquiries, attending internal and external meetings, creating briefs for new research. This environment has taught me how to multitask, deliver within strict deadlines, as well as to get along well with different people in different levels.We work as a team of 8 and I had an opportunity to supervise, I implemented a system to help organize the communication between my co workers to enhance our productivity as a team.The nature of my working environment is flexible but stressful depending on the phase of the research period, however, it teaches the higher level of responsibility, committment and involvement since we operate under minimal supervision.
