Research Assistant

**/**** – 04/2017 Computational Thermodynamics Lab, San Diego, CA, US

Research focused on collaborative work on calculating spread rates of solid fuel (PMMA) in standard and micro-gravity.

Fabricated sample holders for cylindrical and thin sheet PMMA.

Led the experiments and collected data of cylindrical and thin sheet PMMA of varying thicknesses.

Analyzed data in Matlab Graphical User Interface (GUI) to determine the spread rate, leading edge, and flame length of the burning fuel

Organized and presented the data in a coherent manner to people unfamiliar with my research. Promote STEM education

10/2016 Barrio Logan College Institute, San Diego, CA, US

Promoted importance of STEM education among middle school students

Introduced kids to work on a week-long project in teams to develop toy cars manufactured from recycled materials to run in a competition.
