Graduated from a highly ranked Engineering university with experience in integrated circuit design, analog, and space instrumentation. Seeking opportunities to leverage education and engineering experience in, integrating electronics, troubleshooting/testing, and designing analog/digital circuits.

New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology

Socorro, NM

• Graduation Date: May 2016

• Bachelor in science of Electrical Engineering

Satellite Operations Engineer R & D (LinQuest) (Aug 2017 - Present) This position consisted of research and design for newly developed satellite technology. The tasks that performed were science measurements from the payloads, integrating new types of satellite hardware, develop scripts, satellite system/subsystem operations, creating procedures, system automation, and working with ground system software.

• Active Secret Clearance.

3D Printer (Jan 2016 - May 2016)

At New Mexico Institute of Technology and Mining I worked on a project that required each student to design and build a 3D printer. The printer was a delta 3D rather than the traditional Cartesian style. The delta offers higher speeds, more accuracy, and smoother curves. The corner brackets, extruder frame, and filament attachment were 3D printed. The metal frame and extruder were built by the NMT machine shop. The microcontroller was a san smart Arduino mega T3. The program used to slice and print the 3D objects was repetier.

• Designed and built delta 3D printer

• A three legged system controlled by stepper motors

• Programmed the microcontroller Arduino mega T3

Power Monitoring Device (Sandia National Labs) (Aug 2014 - May 2015) Design project at New Mexico tech to create, build, and test a power monitoring device for Sandia National Labs. The power monitoring system was designed from components built by the team members. The system consisted of transducers, data acquisition, flash drive storage, data analysis, and remote access for real time warnings. The presence of power anomalies (transients) affects the regular and safe operation of precise testing equipment. Transients are caused by fluctuations in power from the source or fluctuations in power from a load on the system. The system monitored transients in the electrical outlets of the facilities. The electrical system contained 3 different types of voltages 120, 208, 480. To avoid putting a load on the system, two inductive transducers measured the voltage from the magnetic field around the wires. The voltages collected by the transducers were processed by the data acquisition system (DAS) in real time. The DAS processed the information in real time to send warnings to the facility works before surges or blacks out occurred.

• Signal integrity testing

• Monitor sensitive equipment

• Identify Transients in AC power lines

NMTSAT (New Mexico Tech Satellite) (Aug 2014 – Dec 2014) A specialized course to have a group of students finalize and test different types of sub-systems for a New Mexico Tech satellite. The circuit enclosed a central measurement system (CMS), computer processing unit (CPU), analog to digital converter (SPI), Langmuir probe and voltage reference system (VVS). The CMS measure the voltages produced by the plasma. The CPU processed the information and controlled the functions of the circuit. The VVS created a voltage to reference to for the Langmuir probe. The SPI was an analog to digital converter that turned a signal analog to digital for analysis. The Langmuir Plasma Probe created an electric potential between electrons so the plasma density could be measured.

• Analyzed and tested the Langmuir Plasma Probe (LPP) subsystem

• Designed the LPP release circuit

• Designed the LPP PCB

RobotRave Firefighting Competition (Jan 2014 - May 2014) This design project we had to build a robot to autonomously navigate an 8’x12’ field circumscribed by a white line in search of four candles. The objective was to extinguish all of the candles within three minutes. In addition, the robot had to be able to navigate around obstacles within the course, extinguish the candle within 8” of its base, and deal with sunlight. To accomplish this, the robot had several subsystems: locomotion, obstacle detection, fire detection, fire extinguishing, and line detection. Through the course of this project a robot capable of putting out 4 lit candles in 3 minutes was designed. This robot could navigate an 8’x12’ field through the use of two direct current motors. It did this task autonomously due to the navigation algorithm coded onto an Arduino Due microcontroller. The microcontroller took data from ultrasonic sensors in order to avoid obstacles placed on the field and data from a reflection detector to determine the location of the edge of the field and candles. It could eliminate the fire through the use of a high powered fan, and tell when that fire was removed.
