Dr. Scott Davis has an M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University and specializes in the engineering analysis and testing of combustion, thermal and fluid processes. Dr. Davis applies his expertise to the investigation, prevention, and risk assessment of fires, explosions, and dispersion hazards such as flammable vapors and toxic exposures. Dr. Davis is a principal member of multiple NFPA technical standard committees and provides key training in Gexcon’s advanced safety courses on major hazards. Dr. Davis has published over 100 papers and is a regular speaker in process safety conferences.
Saurav Mitra is a Senior Engineer at Gexcon US with more than 10 years of experience in computational and analytical fluid dynamics. Saurav has a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Minnesota and a master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from Syracuse University. Saurav has worked with various customers in process, oil and gas and automotive industries to develop models, best practices and workflows for applications involving multiphase flows, combustion, heat-transfer, particulate flows and fluid-structure interactions. Saurav currently focusses on dispersion and explosion modeling of flashing cryogenic fuels and refrigerants to predict flammable, toxic and overpressure hazard footprints.
Sanjeev Saraf is currently lead process safety engg in bp upstream. Dr. Saraf has developed various mathematical models: molecular modeling to predict reactivity, consequence modeling for fire/explosions, risk models for quantifying safety/environmental risks and financial models for firm valuations.
Joe Farrow graduated from the University of Sheffield with a master’s degree in chemical engineering. During his time at Norton Straw, he has worked over a range of industries using numerical modelling and analysis of fluid and thermal behaviors to solve engineering problems.
