Mar Rover Robotics Design Winter 2018 – Present

Tempe, Arizona

• Working with a team of ASU students to design and build a Mars rover robot from scratch to compete in the 2019 University Rover Challenge held in Hanksville, Utah on May 30 – June 1, 2019.

• Competition requires the rover to complete tasks of autonomous travel, delivery and retrieval, equipment servicing, and a science cache task.

• Involved with the robotics arm design team, learning ROS for the interaction of components for the rover, and actuator selection that best fits the rovers needs while staying within constraints and budget.

• Project combines aspects of electrical, mechanical, and software engineering for robotics design. Hercutech: Manufacturing Engineering Intern Summer 2018 Tempe, Arizona

• Assisted plant manager in analyzing and improving plant operations to reduce production time to consumer by introducing multiple methodologies for increasing product flow efficiency.

• Created a CAD model in SOLIDWORKS of a product component carrying cart to reduce transportation waste.

• Worked with all sectors of the company including the HR, engineers, and facility workers on the plant site.

• Conducted time studies over several weeks for determining the best way to reduce waste in multiple areas. Hydra Technologies: Aerospace Internship Summer 2016 Guadalajara, Mexico

• Exposed to the avionics, software engineering, and the hardware engineering that went into the making and design of the ground piloted drones, used for tracking and surveying areas for the Mexican military.

• Operated flying a $250,000 training drone that every pilot needed at least 100 hours of flying time, as well as on the computer flying software, before operating drones used for actual military purposes like the S4 Eháctl.

• Assisted sintering together wires and breadboard circuit components that would be used and put into the ongoing drone projects that would ultimately be used for military flight. COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERING PROJECT

Amor: Mexico Project, PV Solar Lead Spring 2018 - Present

• Incorporating PV Solar panels onto the community housing roof for off-grid power supply.

• Creating schematic designs for a solar panel tilt rack system to be altered according to seasonal changes.

• Providing fundraising assistance for funding community kitchen supplies and on-site sustainability. ORGANIZATIONS

• Sun Devil Robotics Club (SDRC)

• IEEE ASU Student Branch
