Supervising Faculty: Brennan Smith
Born and raised in Kerala, India, Asha earned her Bachelor’s in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Mahatma Gandhi University. During her time as an undergrad, she performed research and designed a prototype model of 'Human Powered Treadmill Generator'. This experience coupled with the training she undertook in electrical operations influenced her decision to pursue a Master’s degree in Energy.
As a graduate student in Energy at Texas A&M University, Asha worked with the Industrial Assessment Center (IAC), a DOE funded Program where she received direct training on energy assessment procedures while her education enhanced her knowledge of energy solution and relevant legislation surrounding energy efficiency and carbon emissions. After graduating from her Master’s program, Asha joined the Energy Efficiency Research and Analysis (EERA) group at ORNL as an ASTRO intern where she was involved in the research to help drive significant improvements in the U.S. Industrial energy efficiency.
