Principal Engineer

Autodesk

A full stack developer with extensive experience in Software Architecture and System Design, responsible for software architecture of visual programming tool for generative design.

  • Architected and implemented a cloud based content management solution using Typescript/React.js, and its integration with WPF client using chromium embedded framework.
  • Developed Web-based DWG viewer application using Silverlight and WCF for real-time online collaboration and design.
  • Developed analytics solutions to gain product usage insight and feature prioritization.
  • 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.
