Lead Drivetrain Design Engineer, Electric Formula 1 SAE SPEED Team August 2018 - May 2019

●Attended learning sessions on soldering voltage meter circuits.

●Used Fusion 360 in Mac OS and SolidWorks in Windows OS drafting the gearbox to optimized gear ratios meeting the speed cap of 105 km/hr with average speeds between 40 and 48 km/hr at 60m straights and 48 to 57 km/hr at 77m straights.

Welder, Steel Bridge SPEED Team September 2017 - May 2019

●Attended learning sessions on SolidWorks to determine spatial constraints, material properties, serviceability, and project management.

●Machined the wooden enforcer; cut, welded, and assembled steel parts of the bridge for competition.

Member, Design Build Fly SPEED Team September 2017 - May 2019

●Attended learning sessions on aircraft wings using XFLR5 to design, analyze, and manufacture.

●Fabricated bulkheads and airfoil for prototype aircraft using styrofoam and epoxy.

Boundary Layer Flow, Clarkson University, Potsdam NY Spring 2020

●Evaluate boundary layer growth over a flat plate to determine velocity profile contours for both laminar and turbulent flow with ANSYS Fluent.

Duct Flow, Clarkson University, Potsdam NY Spring 2020

●Analyze developing airflow to find the sensitivity of the solution and comparing numerical velocity profile with the exact laminar flow for a fully matured steady parallel flow profile within a channel.

Flow Simulation, Clarkson University, Potsdam NY Spring 2020

●Visualize the flow around a block in a wind tunnel by simulations in ANSYS Fluent.

Wheelchair Transmission, Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY Fall 2019

●Designed a wheel-integrated transmission system for a wheelchair with input pushrim analogous used in direct-drive configuration.

Finite Element Analysis, Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY Fall 2019
