Jaideep has been a member of SNAME since 1983; he has been active at local and national levels on various panels and committees. He has authored and presented papers on tanker design and ship design standards – in SNAME journals and conferences as well as other forums.
His first association with SNAME began like many others – textbooks and references available to students at special rates. He was quickly impressed by the quality of SNAME publications, and decided to make SNAME an integral part of his professional life.
He began his career working for premier ship design firms for nearly a decade, and then moved to the United States Coast Guard (USCG) as a senior naval architect.
Currently, Jaideep is the Chief of the Naval Architecture Division, within the Office of Design and Engineering Standards at USCG headquarters in Washington DC. The Division serves as the Coast Guard's primary office for the development of standards and regulations (national and international) related to ship stability, load lines, and structures. The Division also supports the United States delegations to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) at various organs of IMO, including the Sub-Committee on Ship Design and Construction (SDC), and the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC).
Passionate about SNAME, Jaideep has remained active in SNAME for his entire professional career, from technical paper authorship, to serving on many Committees, panels and working groups. He is deeply grateful to SNAME, not only for the technical aspects of membership, but also for the enduring, personal relationships.
Jaideep resides in the suburbs of Washington DC with his wife of over 30 years, and they have two daughters.
