Work History

Mechanical Engineer (R&D) 01/2016 to 06/2016

Waters Corporation – Milford, MA

Performed torque testing on high pressure pumps to determine the torque signature of ball screw and analyzed the data using Igor Pro to validate the product design

Developed part drawing in Solidworks and worked closely with Waters Corporation machine shop to manufacture parts

Designed, simulated 3D Models, detailed drawings, and sourced parts for a fixture to find the running and holding current of the electro-mechanical part with an applied axial load within five days – critical for the advancement

Assembled high pressure liquid chromatography pumps and extended support to the reliability engineering department in diagnosis and resolving issues as they occurred

Designed experiments to find the sealing pressure of the medical device cartridges used for chromatography

Applied 5S to the assembly warehouse and updated inventory database on its count and part locations

Research Assistant 01/2015 to 12/2015

High Performance Materials and Structures Laboratory, Northeastern University – Boston, MA

Interpreted schematic diagrams, stress-strain response, normalized deflection from the previous research paper

Developed a Non – Linear finite element model with the elastic and plastic properties of Steel AH 36 using Abaqus

Analyzed structural and displacement simulation models of the sandwich panel subjected to uniform load followed by multiple intense shock loads and interpreted its ductility and strength

Generated input files (.inp) and documented the results for various simulating conditions


Design and Structural Analysis of the Chassis, Independent Project – Boston, MA 07/2016 to 09/2016

Designed an automobile chassis by reverse engineering the existing model using CATIA v5

Performed static & dynamic analysis such as front, rear impact on the chassis to find its strength using Abaqus

Optimized thickness and design of the chassis in order to render it more efficient based on the results obtained

Supply Chain Simulation of an Aerospace Enterprise (Lean Project) 09/2015 – 12/2015

Proposed A3 report as a part of DMAIC approach that adapted drums, buffers to optimally utilize the bottlenecks

Standardised Orders and implemented a Kanban lot by adapting 5s, VSM, Ishikawa diagram (Root-cause analysis), JIT that reduced the WIP inventory costs by 46% and achieved a throughput of 12 from 2 units


Northeastern University, Boston, MA

Candidate for Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Mechanics and Design 12/2016

Anna University, Chennai, India

Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering 05/2014
