PROJECTS COMPLETED

Dual Centrifuge Testing System Aug 2016 – Present

Serve as a Manufacturing Engineer in developing manufacturing plans and collaborating with CAD, Systems/Test Engineers in designing, fabricating, and engineering a dual centrifuge testing system for Los Alamos National Laboratory, currently finalizing a SolidWorks model and sensors for data acquisition. Data Acquisition on a Rear Mountain Bike Air Shock Aug 2016 - Present Conducted measurement studies on the linear displacement of a rear mountain bike shock for the Data Analysis Measurements class. Connected a Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) sensor to a National Instruments Data Acquisition (DAQ) and LabVIEW system to measure the bike’s responses to different weight values to confirm that an air bike shock represented a classic spring-damper-mass system. Drill Powered Vehicle Jan – May 2016

Engineered a drill powered vehicle weighing less than 50 pounds on a $200 budget for an endurance race, collaborating with 5 engineers in the design cycle using professional SolidWorks drawing techniques, employer presentations and team interaction. Calculated failure points and regulated the assembly of the vehicle. Water Systems Remodeling Jan 15 – Aug 2016

Remodeled a water catchment, treatment, and transportation system for a new school in Godak, Nepal, producing several AutoCAD design options with corresponding survey data, and conducting structural analysis, modeling reinforced concrete water filter tanks.

Independent Use Locker Aug – Dec 2013

Engineered an electromechanical system for a student with joint deformities to independently open and close her school locker, using an Arduino Uno circuit board that controlled a button pad, and motor that enabled the student to enter a passcode with her nose to activate the servo/motor to utilize her locker door. EDUCATION & CREDENTIALS
