Decorated Officer with Academic Achievement and Athletic Excellence ribbons.

Earned the rank of Sergeant First Class. Commander of a 50-cadet Company. Recommended to WestPoint. Engineering Projects

Finite Element Analysis

Used SOLIDWORKS to model a cantilever rib structure within a design envelope.

Simulated the boundary conditions and loads applied on the structure using Abaqus CAE.

Used iterative design principles to ensure that the structure do not fail at critical load of 50 lbf.

Built a prototype out of Balsa Wood to test the design and to verify the simulation data.

Earned the highest overall score for both the design process and the final prototype. Power Plant Design

Developed a functional Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) power plant based on the Rankine Power Cycle while optimizing location, costs, and overall plant efficiency. Light Bulb Changer

Designed, analyzed, manufactured and tested a portable light bulb changer to allow various light bulb types to be replaced without the need for ladder.

Used SOLIDWORKS to model and verify the functionality of the design. Employed principles of Product Life Cycle to ensure the product to be produced and tested while minimizing costs. Personal Project

Designed and built a fully articulating LED desk lamp from recycled parts: telescoping selfie-stick, scrap woods, glue, hand-soldered LED light strips and electrical wires.

Redesigned and built a different version of the desk lamp with improved balance and more functionalities such as on/off switch, hidden compartment, and locking mechanism to keep light pointed in desired direction. Skills

Siemens PLM NX 11.0, AutoCAD, CATIA V5R19, SolidWorks, and ABAQUS CAE.

Model, compute, and analyze electromechanical systems using C++ and MATLAB Simulink.

Interpret engineering drawings, follow ASME Y14.5-2009 to apply GD&T to drawings.

Interpret and follow ASTM standards for materials testing.

Proficient use of Tensile Test Machine, Rockwell Hardness Test Machine, Charpy Impact Test Machine. Memberships

ASME, ASHRAE, CSULB Society of Automotive Engineers – BAJA Suspension Team.
