Western Michigan University – Graduate research assistant May 2017 - Present

Developed a computational code to predict the coefficient of friction in truck gearbox.

Investigated the effects of lubricant rheology parameters on the performance of Elastohydrodynamic lubrication.

Western Michigan University – Graduate lab assistant Sep 2015 – March 2017

Led the resource optimization of the laboratory subject to maintaining supplies and organizing the project reports.

Coordinated with CAE administration to ensure that all the software versions are up to date.

Rochi engineers Pvt Ltd - Design engineer July 2013 – Aug 2014

Designed and developed exhaust mufflers for small scale automotive market based clientele.

Participated in full cycle product lifecycle management (PLM) starting from new product development to delivery.

Assisted in the implementation of newly planned environmental standards to comply with ISO 14001.

Researched and conducted an initial gap analysis with the project manager to identify the production processes interacting with the environment.

Identified the objectives for the implementation of the new Environmental management system (EMS).

Worked in tandem with the senior design engineers on site on the senior design project.

Collaborated with design engineers to set design targets to reduce the noise emission of the diesel engine test rig.

Spearheaded a team of 4 engineers to design 3 different prototypes on CATIA V5 with different baffle patterns.

Computed the mathematical models of the prototypes for noise reduction using CFD simulation tools in ANSYS FLUENT.

Prepared excel spreadsheets to document the product design specifications and reported to senior design engineers.

Successfully reduced the noise emission of the lab test rig from 110 db to 90 db.

Published a paper titled “CFD analysis of flow through muffler to select optimum muffler model for CI Engine” by “International Journal of Latest Trends in Engineering and Technology” Vol. 4 Issue May 2014, ISSN: 2278-621X


CAD/ CAE: Ansys, ANSA(Beginner), STAR CCM+(Beginner), Catia V5, Pro-E, Solidworks, AutoCAD.

FORMULA SAE:(Chassis Design, Analysis and Development) 2016-17

Collaborated with 2 engineers to set design targets i.e. weight reduction of the frame and increasing torsional stiffness.

Remodeled the chassis and executed the FEA static structural model in Solidworks.

Reduced the weight of chassis by 15 pounds and increased torsional stiffness by 800 Nm/deg.

FORMULA SAE:(Engine Intake Design) 2015-16

Designed and developed the 20 mm venturi air restrictor for the FSAE racecar.

Modeled 5 different prototypes with different converging and diverging angles to establish a pattern of fluid flow.

Optimized the design to minimize pressure losses and maximize air flow through the restrictor through CFD simulations.

Conducted a study on using hot wire anemometry to plot flow field of restrictor and cross reference it with computational models to understand the discrepancy.

Design, development and testing of a catapult: Aug 2014- Dec 2014

Led a team of 5 engineers to design a robust, cost efficient and an accurate catapult for shooting ping pong balls

Designed the shooting capability a range of 16 feet and utilized DFMEA, DFA to reduce the assembly time by 9 minutes.

Successfully accomplished the target accuracy of 95% with a paltry budget of $22.

Design of a flywheel energy storage system for a solar vehicle: May-June 2015

Conceptualized to use flywheels as mechanical batteries to replace electrical batteries in the solar energy vehicle.

Designed energy storage system 8 lbs lighter than the battery to fulfill 20 % of the energy requirement of the vehicle.
