"Suddenly the crowds part, and there he is . . . sleek, stylish, and radiant with charisma" - My Best Friend's Wedding (1997) I am a Materials scientist and engineer with works on various fields. One most notable perhaps is my work on composite fabrication primarily for car-body manufacturing. The car-bodies I have made are lightweight and energy-efficient. I also work on plasma systems, its design and fabrication including setting up heating and vacuum mechanisms.
