Srinivas Shastri 

Srinivas has worked in a variety of roles ranging from process engineering to academia and has gained experience in a number of areas. He has worked across cultures in India, Singapore, New Zealand (as a student) and now Australia. He completed his first degree in 1989 and then worked on a project for API as part of his Masters.
Srinivas started off as a process engineer and then moved to industrial research culminating in the development of a model of the complex hydrometallurgical process of hydrogen reduction of nickel. As a Research Engineer, Srinivas worked on an optimisation solution for a refinery in Singapore before embarking on research
into Alarm M anagement. The software was successfully implemented in a large refinery, and the research group has spun off into a company. In a faculty role, he had the pleasure of mentoring and developing young engineers while continuing to build strong links with industry. Entering the alternative energy industry, he led the modelling effort of the Shale to Liquid process and significantly contributed to the design of a 115,000 bpd commercial facility.

Srinivas is currently developing, in addition to traditional process engineering support, areas of alternative energy technologies, scoping studies, and is actively involved in Business Development.
