TEAM PROJECT EXPERIENCE

Interdisciplinary Engineering and Design– Participated in 6 projects and led 3 projects, all of which utilized the fundamentals of heat, mass, momentum transport, applied thermodynamics in practical, and applications-oriented settings. Projects required investigation of feasibility, project planning, quality reviews, equipment troubleshooting, budgeting, and scheduling, as well as identification and implementation of process and yield improvements.

Ethylbenzene Production via Ethanol– Designed a chemical plant and plant alternatives that converted ethanol into ethylbenzene via ethylene intermediate, completed with economic feasibility, safety and environmental considerations, and plant efficiency.

Bioprocess Engineering– Created a plant design for biofuel conversion using methods such as fermentation, chemical, biochemical and thermochemical conversion.

Xylene Separation Chemical Plant – Conceptually designed a chemical plant using ASPEN Plus for the separation of Xylene, a unique process requiring the combination of solidification theory and distillation techniques to separate para- Xylene, ortho- Xylene, and meta- Xylene from pure Xylene.

High Altitude Solar Albedo Effects – The Icarus Project – Used multidisciplinary approach to conduct research and conceptually design a prototype satellite that capture direct solar, white-sky and black-sky albedo energy. Our design was one of the two final designs presented to Sr. Manager Clark of Spacecraft Technology Development Lab at Lockheed Martin to construct.


Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Society Christ the King Chapter (Volunteer) – President of Seedling Division, Chapter’s Secretary. Dumb Friends League (Volunteer) –Veterinary Assistant.

Biomedical Engineering Society, American Institute of Chemical Engineers, Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers, Society of Women Engineers, Minority Engineering Programs.
