Experiences

Where I've worked, what I'm working on right now, and bigger projects

Packd.org

Occupancy tracker for UC Berkeley campus libraries, cafes and gyms

Show more [+]Close [–]
Packd started off with a simple question : What's the easiest way to count the number of people in a room? From that initial thought exercise, our team has thought and rethought solutions that rely on simplicity to provide an easy to use, intuitive solution that benefits customers as well as businesses. Developing Packd has been a rewarding experience that allows me to develop and apply skills in numerous areas, ranging from customer interaction, product design and agile development.

Steel Bridge was the first campus organization I joined as a freshman. Now, I lead a team of Mechanical Engineers that produces Solidworks parts for every member of the bridge. I also manage a team in the Etcheverry machine shop, where we produce high precision steel connections. This experience has taught me valuable team management skills, and an innovative approach to producing high quality parts in large volume, within constraints.

Interning at Lime Lab this past summer was an extremely rewarding experience. By working on a diverse array of consumer electronic products, I gained exposure into emerging technology for a number of industry leaders. I learned a great deal about manufacturing methods and designing for injection molding, as well as interfaced directly with vendors to bring ideas to real life. This expsoure to product design has convinced me that I am passionate about building innovative, unique and user focused products.

DSM Biomedical

Mechanical Engineering Intern

During my time at DSM, I accomplished a number of process improvement projects over several manufacturing lines. By completing an internal LEAN manufacturing course, and applying what I learned towards a specific process, I was able to research and identify key areas for improvement. I learned a great deal from speaking to equipment operators and stakeholders, and by the end of the summer, I was able to conclusively propose a plan to significantly improve production time and reduce costs for a product, which I presented to the entire plant.

Over the course of a semester working on MyGreenCar, I learned a great deal about identifying a product's needs, GPS systems, and documenting testing method. Full report is viewable here

Tennis Dyanmics Lab

Shock and Vibration testing

Researched and developed shock and vibration testing methods to test industry tennis rackets. Through this testing, we were able to conclusively determine a racket's "Peak Frequency", which supposedly impacts the smoothness of a swing during follow-through.
