Project Experience

Tractor trailer system project

The goal was to limit the distance between a tractor and trailer using a spring to avoid collisions. Transfer functions were used to generate state space representation and matrices that were plugged in a MATLAB code, showing the behavior of the distance between the tractor and trailer over time and of the velocity.

Sky swimmer

Designed, with a group, a vehicle that floats indoors by means of helium, and moves using thrust generated by 8 helium filled sails in a gaseous atmosphere. Was responsible for designing, using SolidWorks, a CAD model of the linkage system between the body and the sails which created the motion of the sails needed for propulsion

Organ Transporter

A device that helps the lung maintain its physiological values during a 10-hour transportation from donor to patient. Blood substitute perfusion, air ventilation and compositions were all taken into consideration to ensure keeping the lungs alive. The project was designed with group of four people. A lot of research was done for this project in order to know what the physiological values of the lungs are and what are the methods to maintain it.

Lower Limb Passive Exoskeleton
This consisted if the final year CADCAM project. Three mechanisms of a lower limb passive exoskeleton were designed: hip, knee, and ankle mechanism. 3D models were designed using SolidWorks, a failure analysis was conducted on all components, and the system was parametrized via a MatLab code.

01/2018 – present                     Sales associate, watch and jewelry repairs

The Time Shop

Volunteering Experience

·      Participated in a mission trip to Syria for 2 weeks and could work in different groups to bring donated clothes to people in need.
