Detail-oriented, Master's Degreed Mechanical Engineer with more than 25 years of multi-disciplinary experience in Research and Development, Product Design, Production and other disciplines of mechanical design service.
Effectively designed precision optical structures and diagnostic equipment in a fast-paced, cutting-edge research environment. Successful project outcomes often required interpretation of vague or evolving technical requirements, effective interdepartmental communication and minimal supervision. Performed mathematical and FEA analyses to ensure adequate margins of safety were achieved. Design for cleanroom and vacuum service was mandatory.
Instructed first year Engineering Students in the facets of modern Manufacturing Processes.
Provided sole engineering and technical support to a product line of over 150 design configurations. Devised methods to maintain product quality and facilitate manufacturing including the authoring of many Standard Operating Procedures and conducting employee training. Became trained in Six Sigma techniques and conducted many Root Cause and Corrective Action analyses. Managed a special Tiger Team with a directive of reducing product defects. Also instructed assembly and manufacturing personnel basic blueprint interpretation skills.
Instrumental in designing several fluid handling components for government and aerospace agencies in a prototype-like atmosphere. Interpreted customer specifications, conceptualized suitable designs and created drawings. Also played a role in the assembly and testing of components. Managed a drafting department by effectively distributing workload and reviewing and correcting draftsman's detailing work while meeting scheduled milestones. Interacted with customers on a daily basis and conducted critical design reviews pursuant to meeting customer design performance requirements. Demonstrated technical writing skills while authoring many customer proposals.
Concentration: Solid Mechanics. Thesis involved conducting research regarding particle flow dynamics in the human lung with an ultimate goal of determining velocity profiles in a bifurcated lung model replica. Designed and set-up experimental apparatus, conducted the experiment and analyzed the harvested data.
Achieved High Honors for graduating with a 3.8/4.0 grade point average while simultaneously enrolled in the Master's degree curriculum. Effectively performed project manager duties for a multidisciplinary design team while designing an optical test fixture for the capstone project.
