Senior Student Associate

The University of Texas at Austin, Institute of Advanced Technology
  • Self-learned a unique programming language (EMAP3D) in less than a month to create simulations used to study electromagnetic properties of motor sliding interfaces
  • Performed analysis of the effect of muzzle shunt resistance and inductance on the size of blast from a rail gun shot to find an optimum shunt design
  • Created finite element models for analysis of physical properties with Patran simulation software
  • Investigated causes of deformities of a motor interface and developed methods to prevent them
  • Supervised high school interns working on their summer research projects
  • Communicated status of projects to supervisors and interested parties monthly
  • Reported results of completed projects to project sponsors; contributed to research papers submitted to and accepted by respected conferences

Assistant Systems Engineer

The University of Texas at Austin, Satellite Team
  • Designed a printed circuit board layout for a satellite's command and data handling (C&DH) module and outer solar panel boards
  • Tested the satellite's Analog Devices Blackfin processor, radio, GPS receiver and batteries to¬†check that the components worked as expected
  • Led weekly team meetings and phone conferences with project sponsors when the systems engineer¬†was unavailable
  • Communicated the progress of the satellite's design and construction with project sponsors at NASA Johnson Space Center through regular design and safety reviews

Summary

I am seeking an entry-level full-time position in electrical and computer engineering. My main interests are software and embedded system design. I enjoy challenging myself to learn new programming languages and technology. Currently, I am pursuing professional engineer certification from the Texas Board of Professional Engineers. I am willing to relocate to other areas in the United States for work.
