Mechanical Engineer

Active Power

Led the mechanical design and development of a new product line of standardized Switchboards to be integrated into Active Power’s new line of containerized modular power solutions for the large datacenter market.  Active Power manufactures flywheel-based uninterruptible-power-supply (UPS) systems for mission critical facilities offering an array of unique backup power solutions tailored to suit the needs of our customers, including Amazon, Yahoo, Hewlett Packard, Google, Microsoft, etc.  I designed the line of Switchboards using Solidworks with integrated product data management package Enterprise PDM. In addition to the design and generation of full sets of engineering drawing packages, I oversaw and supported the assembly and manufacture of the company’s very first PH480 Powerhouse product working closely with our manufacturing facility and personnel.

Project Lead


Technical Support Facility Design, Senior Design Project sponsored by DELL, Inc.

Designed a free-standing customer service facility for the repair and upgrade of PC’s to be installed in commercial electronic retail stores. The facility contained a reception counter for interacting with customers and processing service requests, an operating room for executing the service requests on the given electronics, and ample storage cabinetry for systems awaiting service. Generated CAD models of candidate concept structures using SolidWorks. Optimized floor plan layout to maximize storage capacity while minimizing overall footprint within retail store. Coordinated with various vendors to obtain quotes for fabrication of prototype.
