Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ GPA: 3.2 May 2019 Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering (Astronautics), Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ GPA: 3.6 May 2018 Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering PROJECT EXPERIENCE

Computational Fluid Dynamics – Navier-Stokes April 2019 – May 2019

• Developed a 2D incompressible Navier-Stokes solver using MATLAB to optimize a mixing chamber returning an accuracy to within 1%

• Applied Gauss-Seidel, Crank-Nicolson, Adams Bashforth Central, and other numerical methods to solve the PDEs in the Navier-Stokes equations while maintaining an average order of accuracy of 2.5

• Implemented the Grid Convergence Index Method along with Richardson Extrapolation to ensure that the solution was not sensitive to the grid size and converged to a solution within 0.05% Senior Capstone Design August 2017 – May 2018

• Designed an artificial gravity crewed deep-space transport with a minimum 15-year lifetime that must support, at minimum, three future trips to and from Mars.

• Coordinated with the hybrid propulsion team to integrate the artificial gravity system and ensure a functional docking mechanism with the spacecraft in orbit.

• Designed and developed the communications subsystem aboard the spacecraft for deep space communication by selecting the appropriate hardware throughout different points of the mission. Computational Fluid Dynamics – Transonic Drag Calculator April 2017

• Analyzed the behavior of Transonic flow over a symmetric and supercritical airfoil by applying CFD.

• Developed an efficient MATLAB program that takes in airfoil data to quickly calculate and analyze the different drag coefficients of supercritical airfoils in Subsonic, Transonic, and Supersonic flow.

• Applied the Gauss-Seidel method to solve the small-perturbation velocity potential equation numerically with an error of 0.1%.

Wing Icing Drag Characterization March 2017

• Designed an experiment to characterize the drag effects due to icing on a wing for general aviation aircraft by comparing the lift and drag coefficients to a non-icing case at various angles of attack.

• Simulated different levels of icing by using rough materials, such as sandpaper, on the surface of a scale model Gulfstream 4 airfoil to collect and analyze data.

• Operated the University’s High-Speed wind tunnel to simulate the flight and collect data for experiment. WORK EXPERIENCE

Memorial Union, Tempe, AZ September 2014 -March 2019 Dedicated to serving students, faculty, alumni, and guests. Event Assistant – Senior May 2017 – March 2019

• Demonstrated excellence and quality in work that resulted in two promotions and obtained the status of a Senior Event Assistant which only 2 of 50 employees hold.

• Maintained and developed the Memorial Union staff in collaboration with the Supervisor.

• Conducted interviews and participated in the selection and hiring process of Event Assistant staff.

• Trained the Shift Supervisors to properly direct the room set-ups and tear downs of the room spaces.

• Attended weekly meetings with professional staff to ensure the department is performing adequately. SKILLS

• Matlab • C++ • Solidworks

• ANSYS Fluent • PSpice • Microsoft Office/Latex
