Work Experience

Mechanical Engineer, Trans Astronautica Corporation, 1/20 to Present

Collaborated with senior engineers to develop Solidworks model for solar thermal rocket.

Designed pulley drive mechanism to open/close aluminum cover used within optical mirror assembly.

Devised kinematic mount for optical mirror tip and tilt adjustment.

Performed FEA thermal and mechanical analysis of global assemblies, subsystems, and individual components.

Modified gearbox and motor specifications to accommodate larger thruster model in thruster gimbal assembly.

Calculated thermal expansion of materials used in solar thermal rocket thruster to determine tolerances.

Managed production and purchasing for solar thermal rocket assembly using Microsoft Excel.

Mechanical Engineer Intern, Guntert & Zimmerman, 1/18 to 7/18

Designed and detailed parts, weldments, and machine assemblies for concrete pavers and trenching equipment.

Referenced engineering sketches to model hydraulic components in Solidworks CAD.

Provided manufacturing floor support and resolved discrepancies between 3D CAD models and real-life assemblies by collaborating with shop workers and identifying root cause of problems.

Documented standard operating procedures for concrete paver pre-ignition processes.

Initiated ECRs (engineering change requests) to revise engineering drawings and manufacturing specifications.
