Computer Aided Design (CAD)

I use CAD on a daily basis to design parts, assemblies, models, and engineering solutions. I’ve worked extensively with Dassault Products such as Solidworks as well as Autodesk applications like Fusion 360 and AutoCAD.

Finite element Analysis (FEA)

While working on the Washington Hyperloop team I learned how to validate the structural integrity of my designs using static structural finite element analysis in Solidworks. I later learned how to do more in depth and accurate FEA in ANSYS Workbench and Fusion 360.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

I’ve used Solidworks static computational fluid dynamic simulations for initial analysis while iterating designs. Furthermore, I learned static CFD in ANSYS Workbench Fluent to get more accurate results. In order to simulate moving systems I learned how to do dynamic CFD to simulate the flow through a valve during actuation.

Machine Design

Through all the projects I've worked on I can confidently say that I have the abilities to conceptualize, design, simulate, iterate, and produce a multi-part system to complete a desired task. I've done this process repeatedly on the many projects that I've worked on which is where I found these skills.

Manufacturing

Through working with the Washington Hyperloop and apprenticing in a machine shop I’ve learned how to use manual mills and lathes. Additionally, I have experience with system assembly and testing.

ELECTRONICS + Coding

Through many of my projects I've needed an electrical system control. For projects like the robotic panohead and the depressurized distillation systems I designed and made my own electronics boards to control the various systems, and programmed the micro-controllers.

Additionally, I learned how to use Matlab to solve complex calculations and physics problems, as well as optimize engineering designs.

Laser Cutting and 3D Printing

Luckily at my high school, Tesla STEM High School, I hade access to a plethora of resources: 3D printers, desktop CNCs, and an Epilog Zing 24 laser-cutter. With these tools I was able to expand my capabilities drastically. Mostly self-taught, I was able to laser-cut parts that I designed, 3D print prototypes, learn CAM software for CNC cutting, etc.
