Engineering Experience

Research Internship, Princeton University, Dr. Alexander Smits, PhD June 2016 – September 2016

• Drag reduction of a DARPA SUBOFF model using slippery liquid-infused porous surfaces (SLIPS)

• Constructing and testing of a SUBOFF model to be more aerodynamic and water dynamic

• Performing tests on various SLIPS surfaces to measure drag reduction, shear stress, and velocity

• Visualization of the wake formation of swimming fish and SUBOFF models using white light and dye

Consultant, Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC), JHU Senior Design Project September 2015-May 2016

• With a $12,000 budget from BAC, optimizing their fill by maximizing thermal efficiency and reducing cost

• Constructing a test water cooling tower for continuous thermodynamic and aerodynamic testing of the fills

• Comparing and analyzing aerodynamic pressure drop and heat flux data from test results

Undergraduate Research, Rutgers University, Dr. Haym Benaroya, PhD, PE June 2015-August 2015

• Described, analyzed and solved the equations of motion for tension leg platforms

(TLP) and similar dynamical vibrating structures

• Used the concept of random vibrations to establish and describe ocean wave models

• Used autocorrelation functions to describe random processes and random vibrations

• By use of Fourier transforms, developed spectral density plots to describe the frequency of the TLP as a function of time

• Wrote a technical paper siting findings and results of the proposed TLP model

JHU Design, Build, Fly Team: Aerodynamics Leader, Chief Engineer September 2013-May 2016

• Responsible for the design and assembly of the wing and tail of a remote controlled plane by analyzing Aerodynamic properties such as lift, drag, and airfoil camber

• Writing Matlab code to optimize key aerodynamic properties that fit design constraints and objectives

• Using Creo 3.0 to model and analyze pre-existing airfoils

• Using AVL computer program and CFD to evaluate the aerodynamic and flight-dynamic analysis of the entire plane

• Analyzing CAD models to ensure that the wing and tail are properly sized to the plane

• Repaired all prototypes that crashed or did not meet design constraints

Generosity Water, President of Student Group December 2011- February 2012

• Raised $800 for the organization Generosity Water in order to build wells in Africa

• Educated fellow classmates about the cost and benefits of wells in impoverished African nations


Computer: PTC Creo Elements/Pro 3.0, Solidworks 2014, Matlab, Comsol, Maple, Microsoft Office Language: Intermediate Spanish
