Construction Materials Engineering Technician July 2020 – Present

• Operate nuclear moisture density gauge to inspect compaction of various construction soils and perform field inspections to obtain the temperature, air content, and slump of concrete to verify compliance to specification

• Interact and communicate with contractors as well as interpreting design schematics during the construction process of a $500 million dollar project and prepare daily reports based on field inspection results

• Utilized company vehicle to participate in multiple projects within the site including roadways, parking lots, retaining walls, and utilities Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE) Binghamton, NY Professional Chair June 2019 – May 2020

• Coordinated developmental workshops and events for students including resume building and STEM career path panel

• Participated in executive board meetings to critique, improve, and solidify proposed event plans

• Hosted an $1,800 budget intercollegiate professional luncheon involving industry professionals and professors to help students learn more about potential STEM careers through interactive networking and discussion sessions Binghamton University Physics Department Binghamton, NY Physics Lab TA August 2017 – May 2019

• Attended weekly meetings to familiarize the background and applications of many fundamental physics concepts

• Demonstrated different scientific apparatuses such as the Van de Graff generator and fiber optic cables to help students visualize various complex phenomena ranging from electromagnetism to wave optics Equal Opportunity Program (EOP Center) Binghamton, NY Private Tutor September 2018 – September 2019

• Assisted students in Physics, Chemistry, and Mechanical Engineering coursework

• Taught fellow students about valuable learning strategies such as time management, note-taking, and study to help the student learn independently


Mobile Art Studio (Senior Capstone Project) Binghamton, NY Team Lead August 2019 – May 2020

• Headed an expandable mobile art studio design that included HVAC, lighting, waste disposal, and chemical storage systems

• Facilitated team discussions to identify and document all steps in the design process

• Created a detailed 3D model of the studio in PTC CREO including a telescoping mechanism, lead screw driving system, garage door folding floor, and I-beam support system that works together to expand and support the studio

• Tested model with scaled loading condition in ANSYS APDL to obtain the stress state and deformation at critical points Aircraft Landing Gear (Junior Design Project) Binghamton, NY Solo Project August 2018 – December 2018

• Created the landing gear mechanism assembly in PTC CREO from technical drawings of components which included tolerances and material property to evaluate mechanism safety by applying equivalent theoretical weight load

• Simulated the motion of the landing gear mechanism during landing and take-off using a piston-cylinder driving system

• Evaluated stress state in the linkage system and the connecting joints to determine an approximate factor of safety of 2 18 Stairway to Sustainable Energy Binghamton, NY

Team Member January 2017 – May 2017

• Analyzed current commercial escalator and identified the design aspects that contribute to their energy consumption

• Calculated the average energy consumption of commercial escalators and evaluated the different alternative designs by using Pahl & Beitz evaluation criteria to select the design that best satisfy the design requirements

• Formalized design schematic which incorporated intermittent drive and LED lighting system that reduce energy consumption by 48% and cost by nearly $9400/year
