Metallurgical Engineering Intern, Naval Material Research Laboratory, India Feb 2014 – May 2014

Applied in-suite method to develop and research composite material properties of aluminum alloy researched material properties such as (hardness, tensile strength, and vibration damping).

Researched key factors associated with the mechanical properties, such as hardness, tensile strength, and vibration damping of aluminum alloy, and using the in-suite method, developed the aluminum alloy composite

Through testing and implementation of new processes, successfully reached the optimum mechanical properties of aluminum alloy, therefore replaced the conventional material.

Design of Experiment of 5 Factorial Catapult Summer 2015

Designed five “Factorial Experiment” to analyze and determine the maximum distance travelled during a catapult.

Identified the nuisance’s variable which helped to reduce the noise in the system

Used ANOVA method, analyzed the experimental output and found significant factors that created a representative body of data.

Continuous Improvement Project in operations for A.M TODD, MI Fall 2015

Performed critical analysis of lean implementation efforts like 5s, KPI of Wild flavor, and Assessed.

Used KPI’s to track the progress of the operation gathered data to identify opportunities like a revision of VSM.

Successfully reduced the Production lead time from 328 to 129 minutes.
