Director January 2011 to July 2015ECODAS - Seattle, WA
Provided leadership and strategic direction to establish a U.S.
Division by determining barriers and cost of entry and identified programs to successfully implement a regulated medical waste management and service disposal operations with a scale of economy.
Oversaw and obtained regulatory approvals to introduce a clean non-burning technology to North America and grew the business in a highly competitive market with a successful entry to the U.S.
and Canada to become a dominant contender in the medical waste disposal industry.
Managed all business operations including compliance, legal, functional, marketing, sale, and business partnerships in the Americas while maintaining growth during economic downturns.
Identified and developed new business opportunities and partnerships and improved relationships with existing vendors, service providers, and customers resulting in a $1.5 million increase in new product revenues over a two-year period.
Negotiated long-term contracts and formed collaboration with manufacturers, businesses, distributors, and suppliers resulting in 20% coast reduction.
Supervised a distribution network in North and South America and created operation plans and managed related projects by defining desired outcomes, clarifying the vision, establishing business partnerships, preparing and releasing budgetary proposals, and handling tradeshow conventions.
Senior Project Engineer January 2006 to January 2011Boeing Defense, Space & Security - Seattle, WA
Communications and Network: Broadband In-flight SatCom Network and VIP/Special Air Mission Joined R&D team to improve product line and services by enhancing design, optimizing operation capabilities, simulating system architectural solutions, and validating test procedures.
Supported Boeing Wideband Communication & RF System broadband Aeronautical Mobile-Satellite Service Network and helped manage its capacity modeling connectivity, global coverage requirements, route simulation capability, and evaluated optimized network solutions.
Built Simulink models to illustrate Medical Body Area Network System (MBANS) devices transmission and their interference impact on Aeronautical Mobil Telemetry (AMT) receivers and determined the exclusion zones needed to circumvent anomalies and impacts on flight test telemetry operations.
Worked with Mobile Satellite Venture customers to simulate and integrate MSV satellite space segment connectivity model, architecture, and design into test simulations providing Matlab algorithm recovery solutions/techniques to assess/validate system operation and performance.
Software Engineer January 2004 to January 2006Boeing Commercial Airplanes - Seattle, WA
Boeing 777 & 787 Autopilot Modeling & Simulation.
Served as the primary lead and focal contact for 777 and 787 autopilot configuration management: Administered, developed, managed, tested, and released Boeing 777/787 autopilot Integrated Aircraft Configuration (IAC) software systems and models, its designs, architecture, and interfaces to ensure product functionality and compliance to FAA autoland certification.
Took initiative to improve data collection, sharing, and analyzing processes by developing fully automated flight test correlation, statistical, and Monte Carlo Matlab applications that established 85% cost reduction, improved processing time, and reduce rework and process complexity for customers, flight control, flight test, simulation group engineers, and FAA personnel.
Established a streamlined training orientation for new employees and Mentored and trained new hires.
Avionics Design Engineer January 2003 to January 2004Bell Helicopter Textron Inc - Fort Worth, TX
Contributed to Electrical/Avionics design, interface and architecture of Bell Eagle Eyes HV-911 tilt rotor VUAV and worked with customers and suppliers to define, develop, and implement architectural and electrical system requirements.
Analyzed and translated requirements and ICDs into system architecture, and converted technical specifications and hardware/software design integration into user interface.
Assisted in the development and assembly of the Aircraft Test Simulator to support VUAV preliminary control laws and subsystems electrical/avionics airborne test, validate the design to system operation and functional specifications.
Project Engineer January 2002 to January 2003Cornell University - Ithaca, NY
Designed and implemented the electrical system of a lightweight Autonomous Flying Quattro-copter Vehicle to provide vehicle's commands & controls.
In support of Ionospheric F Region Electrodynamics & Space Plasma Rocket Investigation, modeled and analyzed electronic circuit for instrumented collection of electromagnetic fields data for NASA's funded research rockets to explore the electrodynamics and plasma ionospheric irregularities.
RF and Antenna Engineer January 2001 to January 2002Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems US Air Force Wideband Gapfiller and Spaceway Satellites - Los Angeles, CA
Developed, verified, and validated spaced based antennas, phased arrays, and spacecraft designs and performance specs through PDR, CDR, and TRR reviews that included Monte Carlo analysis, simulation modeling, and chamber testing to comply with customer and manufacturing requirements.
Completed and executed final bench test verification for Telemetry and Command Antennas, implemented measurements and test procedures, presented Range Readiness Review, and coordinated test activities to meet customer requirements.
Performed satellite antennas scattering and passive inter-modulation analysis with respect to the spacecraft's structure and its operating frequencies, and verified their performance over CFOVs using different beams pointing at various frequency bands.
