Design Engineering Fixed-Time Intern

Stream Dx, Inc.

Salt Lake City,USA

Worked on ‘at home uroflowmeter’ that enables urologists to deliver high- quality, inexpensive LUTS care by measuring volume flow rate of the urine. Tested the device for its accuracy to measure volume & volume flow rate with MATLAB

Developed a prototype to simulate hand tremor motion. Modeled it with Pro-E & built it using 3D printing Reviewed and corrected FMEA documents for the device 05/2014 – 08/2014

Mechanical Design Engineering Intern, R & D


Biogreen Energy Systems Pvt. Ltd.


Worked on three stage pressure compounded impulse steam turbine under development.

Calculated critical speeds and thermal expansions

Suggested design changes for assuring safety of the turbine from failure due to temperature rise and vibrations Selected a suitable material for insulation of the turbine EDUCATION

Study of change in orientation of adventitial collagen in cerebral blood vessels during & post axial overstretch

(M.S. Thesis Project approved in May 2018)

(08/2015 – 08/2017)

Developed a protocol to carry out imaging of the biological tissue Followed a predefined protocol to carry out its mechanical testing Modified the lab tester for precise motion of the tissue Documented experimental details in an official lab notebook Analyzed the collected numerical data statistically (calculating mean & standard deviation, running t-tests to find p-values) Validated transportation protocol of the biological tissue Verified quality of the data by matching calculated collagen orientation with that reported in a literature

Formed a report mentioning procedures and findings FEA of an EOT crane hook to decide the best suitable cross-section & to optimize it (08/2015 – 12/2015) Calculated dimensions of the crane hook for desired load & modeled it with Pro-E

Used Hypermesh for preprocessing & Ansys for stress analysis & post processing of the 3D model

Verified the model with von-Mises stress & optimized for reduction in stress & volume

Design, Manufacturing, Calibration & Testing of Paper Puncture Resistance Tester (06/2012 – 06/2013)

Designed the tester in accordance with TAPPI standards Modeled it with Solidworks and drafted manufacturing drawings with Auto CAD specifying GD&T & BOM

Fabricated the tester in BILT (BGPPL) workshop

Calibrated & tested for accurate and repeatable readings ACHIEVEMENTS

Teaching Assistant (01/2016 – 05/2017)
