Amin Sadat Khansari

**** ******** ***** ******** *****, CA 91364 818-***-****


Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering Graduation: June 2018

University of California, Riverside

Previous Engineering Projects

Non-invasive Lateral Flow Assay Pacifier for Infant Salivary Cortisol Measurements

Senior Design Project Team Leader

Prototyped in SolidWorks a pacifier that non-invasively collects saliva from infants and transfers the saliva to a lateral flow assay to detect salivary cortisol concentrations greater than a physiologically relevant threshold

Troubleshot lateral flow assay to detect high cortisol concentrations by optimizing gold conjugate and antibody ratios by designing experiments testing the different concentrations of each

Used statistical analysis to identify the user-end’s ease of operation and feasibility of the device

Smart Sock with Real-time Gait Analysis and Fitness Tracking Capabilities

Design Team Leader

Prototyped a smart sock that measures a user’s foot pronation, force of impact, and distance travelled in real-time so the user better understands their running technique

Designed to help runners that over-pronate, a problem 2/3 of Americans have that leads to lower back pain

Used strategically placed pressure and flex sensors around the sock for physiological data acquisition and data processing using Matlab

Work Experience

VEX Instructor and Residential Assistant (Jun 2018 – July 2018)

Education Unlimited, Inc

Taught a group of visiting foreign exchange students how to build a VEX Robot

Developed an engineering curriculum based on the current needs and skill level of attending students

Monitored the safety and well-being of Education Unlimited students living in University of California Berkeley dormitories

Associate Thin Film Process Engineer (Jun 2017 – Mar 2018)

Dr. Ludwig Bartels’ Lab in University of California, Riverside

Assisted in developing atomically thin transmission metal dicalcogenide (TMD) semiconductor films

Utilized problem-solving skills to optimize TMD film growth using chemical vapor deposition (CVD)

Analysed and characterized surface photoluminescence, absorption spectra, and surface geometry using Raman spectroscopy equipment and optical microscopes

Documented and organized results into cross functional group documents

Founder/Head of Operations of Camp 404 (Jul 2012 – July 2015)

El Camino Real Charter High School

Founded summer camp aimed at instructing elementary and middle school students on how to design, build, and program robots using the VEX robotics system while emphasizing the importance of STEM education

Raised over $10,000 each summer to fund our robotics team to compete at the international level

Evaluated the performance of each mentor and group on a daily basis and used the evaluations to further improve the summer camp

Technical and Interpersonal Skills

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) technique to grow advanced 2D materials

Raman spectroscopy to analyse materials

Experienced and interpersonal leadership qualities demonstrated in VEX robotics team and the Delta Chi Fraternity

Beginning knowledge of Lean Six Sigma

SolidWorks 3D CAD Software

Strong analytical and problem solving skills honed from 4 years in competition robotics

Effective interdisciplinary communication skills developed from cross-functional research lab team

Eager and quick to learn new skills
