Research Engineer Co-Op (Session 3)
Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc
Jan 2020 - May 2020
- Designed, built, and tested a flow bench to measure airflow through reciprocating engine heads at different valve lifts and a constant test pressure to quantify improvements after different valve jobs, port, intake, and exhaust designs.• Ran a Rotax 912is four-cylinder, four-stroke, lightweight aircraft engine while simulating different altitudes in the intake to map brake-specific fuel consumption (BSFC) at different speeds and throttle positions.
Research Engineer Co-Op (Session 2)
Innovative Scientific Solutions Inc.
May 2019 - Aug 2019
- Set up and measured flow rates through different sized orifice fuel injectors at varying temperature and pressure while analyzing misting limits. • Designed and set up a 3" predetonation tube experiment using pressure transducers and ion probes created to measure supersonic wave speed as well as Alicat gas mass flow controllers.• Calculated flow rates for different combinations of hydrogen and ethylene with air based on equivalence ratio and created soot foils to measure and analyze detonation cell sizes.
Research Engineer Co-Op (Session 1)
Innovative Scientific Solutions Inc.
Aug 2018 - Dec 2018
- Set up and ran aircraft turbine experiments at the Air Force Research Laboratory using a 480V dynamometer, gearboxes, belts, and fuel lines to test torque, power, speed, and pressure output.• Modeled parts needed for experiments using SolidWorks such as mounting plates and shafts after performing stress and torque analysis.• Designed and set up motor experiment to measure losses through a gearbox up to 84,000 rpm being sure to measure both torque and rpm on input and output with no load.
Student Trainee
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Jul 2018 - Aug 2018
- Utilized Army Records Information Management System (ARIMS) database to safely store and organize personal information, records, and other files.• Attended meetings to help calculate risks from storm water run-off on dredging operations.• Proofread reports and used Excel and Adobe to perform data analysis and better organize long files.
House Manager

- In charge of house repairs, upkeep, and supply stocking for four story household. • Responsible for maintaining all inspections and policies correlated to fire, smoke, and health related instrumentation so that the members stay safe and up to code.
Mechanical Engineer
Purdue Hyperloop Team
Sep 2017 - May 2018
- Calculated necessary braking force based off desired mass, acceleration, and distance to theend of the track for high-speed hyperloop pod.• Designed a braking array using pneumatically actuated cylinders with Kevlar friction pads that clamp onto I-Beam rail to stop safely and as quick as possible.
Design Lead
EPICS Learning Community
Aug 2016 - May 2017
- Led team in designing and creating a cornhole cannon using PVC pipes cocked back by a 12V automatic winch and elastic bungies on a portable mechanism. • Communicated with project partner, Wabash Center Greenbush Industries, to effectively come up with a project that is suitable for their users with handicap restraints.
HVAC Technician
Eagles Mechanical Contractors
Jun 2014 - Aug 2017
- Diagnosed problems with HVAC, plumbing, and refrigeration based off customer complaints.• Installed new condensers, furnaces, and air handlers to heat and cool both residential and commercial buildings.• Brazed, re-wired, and charged malfunctioning air-conditioning systems to fix leaks and improve efficiency.
