Engineering Tech Lead with 10+ years of experience of working on development projects in leading scientific areas. Over the years my role has involved R&D for designing products and processes responsible for the program's success.
Currently I lead development programs for a MEMs company providing custom solutions for a diverse customer base for applications ranging from inertial sensors, Lidar, waveguides, VR display, to microfluidics.
Highly organized, proactive and adaptable with strong work ethic and motivation to thrive in team-based or individual settings. Attention to detail, scientific rigor, and persistence are some of my strengths. Skilled at meeting challenging objectives and tight deadlines.
Company Name - Tech LeadCity, State11/2019 - Current
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.
Company Name - Sr. Integration EngineerCity, State01/2018 - Current
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.
Company Name - Sr. Research AssociateCity, State10/2013 - 01/2018
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.
Company Name - Postdoctoral Research FellowCity, State09/2011 - 10/2013
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
Proud member of NSF team that built the SPT-3G telescope, currently installed in Antarctica for detecting cosmic microwave background (CMB)
