Professional Experience

Apple Inc. Cupertino, CA

Recycling R&D Engineer Co-Op, Operations Product Design, September 2018 – December 2018

Managed and lead R&D project for developing electro-mechanical recycling systems for Apple products by coordinating with vendors and internal cross-disciplinary PD teams to gather feedback and meet deadlines

Developed optimal cycle time processes for de-manufacturing of various Apple products. Resulted in a 90% increase in the Unit-per-Hour output compared to the current manual methods

Designed electro-mechanical prototypes for autonomous and semi-autonomous machinery to showcase cycle time improvement and disassembly effectiveness. Designs also continuously integrated feedback from EH&S to improve operator ergonomics, and to meet relevant California E-waste laws and regulations

Manufactured designs using CNC/machining, 3D printing, and soldering

Axon Enterprise Inc. (Formerly TASER International) Phoenix, AZ

Manufacturing R&D Engineering Co-Op, Conducted Energy Weapons Dev. Team, January 2018 – April 2018

Managed and designed an automated manufacturing robot project for glue dispensing on TASER flex components. Coordinated with PD & manufacturing teams to continuously integrate feedback to design and meet scheduled deadlines

Improved TASER components production output by 140% by redesigning various production equipment,

Completed multiple root cause analysis projects to identify problems in selected TASER prototype samples

3D Printed, laser cut, machined, soldered, and programmed in Arduino to fabricate and test prototypes

Christie Digital Systems Inc Waterloo, ON

Mechanical Engineering Co-Op, Thermal Team, May 2017 – August 2017

Designed electro-mechanical testing fixtures and functional parts for thermal and optical devices

Manufactured designs via rapid prototyping, including 3D printing, CNC/machining, and soldering

Used SolidWorks FEA to minimize stress concentration points, preventing plastic deformation and fracture


University of Waterloo,

Bachelor of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering, Graduating June 2019

University of Waterloo – Robotics Student Design Team Waterloo, ON

Team Lead / Mechanical Designer, September 2016 – August 2018

Placed 2nd in Canada and 15th globally in the University Rover Challenge 2017, a competition where teams create a Mars Rover robot to perform multiple tasks, such as desert traversal and arm manipulation

Reduced weight by 10% and power usage by designing an improved mechanical arm and drive train system

Managed 3 different projects, by creating timelines, budget plans, and logistics for events and away trips
