11/2019 to Current
Tech Lead Arisglobal Miami, FL,
  • Led R&D for development programs to transform early concept designs to working prototypes. Experience of working on programs with wide-range of applications like – MEMS inertial sensors, silicon optical benches (SiOB), developing grayscale lithography for micro-lens, IR sensors, microfluidics, microneedles, VR display, Lidar, etc.
  • Led cross-functional team efforts to integrate all technical aspects (additive, subtractive, and metrology) of the projects.
  • Reviewed and vetted programs in pre-PO phases for technical feasibility.
  • Derived and interpreted customer’s technical and business requirements to create roadmap for delivering prototype.
  • Worked on new confidential projects of prime strategic importance. Reported directly to VP of Engineering to keep upper management informed, and to reach the goals.
01/2018 to Current
Sr. Integration Engineer Paypal California, MD,
  • Defined technical integration strategy and developed integration plans.
  • Created technical reports, troubleshot issues, recommended design changes, and scale-up strategies for pilot production.
  • Improved silicon optical mirror etch process resulting in yield increase from existing
  • Led novel grayscale lithography project to create microlens arrays
  • Improved work processes and trained employees. Recommended corrective and preventive actions to boost product reproducibility and reliability.
10/2013 to 01/2018
Sr. Research Associate Amazon.Com, Inc. San Antonio, TX,
  • Key member in U.S. national project on design and development of the latest generation mm-wave camera (Project SPT-3g) Fabrication design involved complex 20+ wafer level processing steps and was designed to be ~10 times higher in efficiency as compared to previous generations. This camera has been operational at the NSF South Pole research station in Antarctica since December 2017.
  • Investigated materials (reactive sputtering, E-beam evaporator, PECVD), and device schemes, for next generation detectors including CMB-S4. Maintained detailed records of experimental protocols and data in laboratory notebooks.
  • Managed thin-film deposition tools, and set-up for electrical testing on device scale. Published technical reports and peer-reviewed journal papers.
09/2011 to 10/2013
Postdoctoral Research Fellow University Of Michigan Ann Arbor, MI,
  • Designed and conducted series of experiments to investigate nature of tunneling in low dimensional (2D electron gas) GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures. Identified relevant questions and determined best methods for data collection at 30mK.
  • Directed study approaches by recommending, developing and executing strategies.
  • Microfabricated 50um thin devices (E-beam, litho, evaporation) with gates connections on both sides for electrical measurements.
  • Mentored undergraduates for microfabrication and to run He3 fridge
