Principal Engineer

Autodesk
  • Successfully lead and managed several high profile project within the organization.
  • Supervised and conducted architecture, design activities as well as code reviews.
  • Designed and developed an efficient system with fluid user experience (UX) for associative patterning of objects governed by rules defined using geometry and parameters controlled by expressions.
  • Developed tools for associative surface modeling such as surface edge fillet, surface extension etc. The surface generated using these tools are associative with defining geometry and its parameters can be controlled using expressions.
  • Designed and implemented feature/application, based on associative modeling and modern UI for company's flagship product.
  • Designed and implemented a system to infer constraints and associativity.
  • Designed and developed system for parametric (geometric and dimension constraints) modeling command interface.
  • Developed WPF-based document and layout navigation feature(Quick View) for AutoCAD.
  • Developed Web-based application using Silverlight and WCF for realtime online collaboration and design
