Research and Teaching assistant
Worked as a Research assistant in the thermal management and research laboratory (TMRL) under the TEG POWER project which aims to develop novel exhaust gas energy harvesting and recirculation systems. http://tmrl.mcmaster.ca/wp/
Developed a Full Thermo-electric based DC- Microgrid system model that is able to predict the overall performance of a system which includes Thermo-electric generators, Heat exchanger, Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT), Energy storage and Variable loads.
Designed a control algorithm for a (Test Kitchen) setup that automates the operation of the whole system, this setup is designed to test the performance and viability of an Energy harvesting system based on Thermo-electric generators in commercial restaurants as a part of Gen III (P.O.W.E.R) project. Worked as a Teaching assistant in the Composite Laboratory course for undergraduate mechanical engineering students.
Teaching undergraduate students in the mechatronics department (Robotics, CNC programming and Mechatronics system design).
Volunteered with the department administrative work in quality assurance of course work.
