EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

UNIVERSITY OF ST. THOMAS, St. Paul, Minnesota, B.S., Mechanical Engineering, Dec. 2016 GPA: 3.3

Transfer Student Academic Award Recipient

Engineering Tutor, Peer Mentor and Teacher’s Assistant / Grader

Dean's List

Academic Honor Society Membership, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) ACADEMIC ENGINEERING EXPERIENCE

SENIOR DESIGN CLINIC: LAPDESK STAND, Summer and Fall 2016

Communicated and collaborated with peers, sponsor and customers regarding user needs, wants, added value and engineering requirements for tablet stands that provide ergonomic viewing, storage and portability.

Team leadership position that required time, budget and task management.

Researched and implemented a continuous locking hinge for ergonomic viewing angles to replace a more costly friction hinge.

Created 3D model in Ansys to conduct finite element analysis (FEA) of static loading the device would experience under normal use circumstances.

Created 3D model in Solidworks with bill of materials, bilateral and symmetric tolerances, and exploded views for manufacturing and assembly instructions.

Constructed prototypes to conduct laboratory tests to compose an uncertainty analysis in excel, and finite element analysis (FEA) confirmation.

ROBOTICS CLUB: AUTONOMOUS SNOW PLOW, Fall 2015

My contribution to the project was a mechanical redundancy safety system to prevent injury to person or damage to property.

Researched overlay and wedging risk as well as static and dynamic risks.

Created a Solidworks drawing for a potential solution. CANOE STABILIZER, Spring 2014

Researched, designed and built a prototype for a detachable stabilizing arm that would prevent a canoe from capsizing while windsailing.

Designed laboratory tests to determine mechanical capacities and maneuverability.

Delivered 3D Solidworks drawing with tolerances, bill of materials and exploded views.

Performed an uncertainty analysis in excel in graphical form to qualify data from laboratory testing. BREAD FRUIT PROJECT, Spring 2014

Created a 3D design in Solidworks with dimensions, tolerances and exploded views of a shelving system that would house and dry a fruit indigenous to Haiti.

Researched material availability and cost in the region.

Researched sustainability and the resulting footprint from the manufacturing and implementation of our design. SKILLS
