In Gurgaon, India, UOP's 400,000 square foot research center for refining and petrochemical process technology brings UOP's research and development closer to its global consumer base, and its applications labs in Saudi Arabia and China help find solutions critical to regional customers.

Gautam began his career with Union Carbide in 1978, which became part of a joint venture with UOP in 1988. Before he was named president and CEO of UOP, Gautam served as vice president of research and development for UOP and vice president and chief technology officer for Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies. During the last three decades, he has held several other key positions, spanning research and development, engineering and marketing.

Gautam has been responsible for the development and commercialization of a broad range of catalytic and separations applications for the refining, petrochemical and gas processing industries. Some of his most significant discoveries include the development of advanced algorithms that have become the cornerstone of modern process design and optimization software.

Gautam earned a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology and a master's degree in chemical engineering from Drexel University. He also earned a doctorate in chemical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and has served in key roles in program development in the Computing and Systems Technology Division of AIChE.

The Chemical Engineering Personal Achievement Award has been awarded by Chemical Engineering magazine every other year since 1968 to industrial and academic leaders in the field of chemical engineering. Gautam was selected from a pool of 16 international finalists and presented with this prestigious award at the 2012 ChemInnovations Conference recently held in New Orleans, La.
