• Design and Optimization of active – aerodynamics of a FSAE race car Fall 2018 Devised mathematical model for numerical implementation of airfoils of a formula 1 race car and optimized design variables using heuristics and gradient-based algorithms in MATLAB to increase downforce and reduce drag on car. Validated results in ANSYS – CFD tool.

• Low – fidelity design optimization and feasibility of high-speed roadster Fall 2018 Augmented design variables to accommodate mission requirements for maximum velocity of 1050 mph under given constraints of acceleration, distance, engine thrust and braking force. Simulated low-fidelity mathematical model in MATLAB.

• Design and Optimization of a Centrifugal Governor Spring 2018 Modelled eight-legged highly repeatable centrifugal governor to operate under given conditions of stress, deflection and frequency. Improved design using Finite Element Analysis in Solidworks Simulation.

• Identification of Design Response Surface (Design of Experiments) Spring 2018 Drafted an experiment plan to identify and optimize response surface generated by 6 predictor variables. Calculated ANOVA and regression in Minitab to identify significant variables, test null hypothesis and validate ANOVA assumptions.

• Design of a Cooling Bench and Prototyping (New Product Development Project) Fall 2017 Conducted an ethnography study to understand customers' pain areas. Fashioned design parameters and product variables for 5 candidate designs by translating customer needs into product specifications. Modelled concept design in Solidworks and CATIA with appropriate tolerances (GD&T). Converted concept CAD model into prototype with 3D printing.

• Systems Architecture of Tesla Model S Fall 2017

Studied architecture, features and technologies used in design and development of Tesla Model S. Identified engineering trade- offs and heuristics in design of critical subsystems with architectural decisions on quality attribute and subsystem interactions. LEADERSHIP AND EXTRA-CURRICULARS

• Design Engineer at Hyperloop, USC (Structures Team) Spring 2017 Modelled and assembled components of transport capsule using CAD tools. Performed wheel analysis and force calculations for Lateral Control Mechanism (LCM).

• Senator at USC Viterbi Graduate Student Association Spring 2017 Coordinated with students and department advisor for new academic initiatives and organized events for on-campus students.

• Design Engineer (SAE Supra team) Spring/Fall 2012 Modelled and analyzed roll cage and chassis. Hands-on experience in installation of brake calipers and hydraulic braking system.
