Using Seatrec's proprietary technology, I help generate new product ideas that can provide energy for various ocean-based devices deployed around the world. Working closely with both the end-user stakeholders and Seatrec's engineering team, I lead the early-stage development and high-level concept design of new clean energy solutions for ocean environments.
Conceptualized and developed presentations of innovative uses of Seatrec's proprietary energy generation technology using solid-to-liquid and liquid-to-gas phase change material
July 2018 - June 2020
Led hands-on mechanical engineering projects within a high-volume automated production line focusing on reliability, cost minimization, and improved yield, reducing yearly maintenance costs by tens of thousands of dollars.
Developed a dosing algorithm alongside mechanical improvements based on root cause analysis, increasing overall plant throughput by over 2% through eliminating a long-standing production bottleneck.
Introduced 3D Printing to the manufacturing facility, saving thousands quarterly and promoting rapid prototyping.
Modeled and drafted mechanical assemblies in PTC Creo, supporting various NPD and legacy projects within Windchill and conducting structural analysis with ANSYS Workbench
Delivered drawings with Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing and Design For Manufacturing conformance.
MECHANICAL ENGINEER INTERN
June 2017 - August 2017
Tested & validated mechanical systems and electrical sensors, collaborating with senior engineering staff.
Designed, tested, and presented a prototype proprietary robot storage system with an innovative fail-safe mechanism approved for internal and external use.
Modeled and developed documentation of robotics safety mechanisms as the only intern included as part of a cross-functional design team of senior engineering staff.
MECHANICAL ENGINEER INTERN
June 2016 - August 2016
Conducted structural, thermal, and acoustic testing of set-top products electronics packaging, providing feedback and analysis to senior mechanical design engineering staff.
Developed a new procedure for acoustic testing of electronics set-top boxes, yielding $3,500 in annual savings.
Used PTC Creo and 3D printing to develop and test tactile hardware improvements, ultimately accepted by the end customer for large-scale production.
