Manufacturing Engineering Intern

Body in White, Tesla | May - Aug. 2023

In the summer of 2023 I interned as a manufacturing engineer at the Tesla Fremont Factory. I learned how to analyze manufacturing lines, optimizing processes and equipment for cycle time. I also practiced project management and handled communicating feedback to vendors on line layouts. I practiced design for manufacturing and assessed tooling impacts as well as engaged in root cause analysis for manufacturing issues.

Case Aeronautics Team

Team Member, Airframe Design Lead | since Sep. 2020

As a member of the Case Aeronautics Team (CAT), I participate in the annual AIAA Design Build Fly (DBF) RC plane competition, where teams from across the world design and compete their aircraft. As the airframe design lead, I focus my efforts on the fuselage design and subsystem integration components. As a part of the competition we also deliver a comprehensive design report on our aircraft and team structure.

Team Member, Co-captain - 2018-2020

As a member of a Botball team, I designed, built, and programmed robots for competition, using C. On my second year, I became co-captain of my team and we won 2nd place overall at the regional tournament. In the same year our team went on to become the world champions at the international tournament in Oklahoma against 60+ other teams.

Remote Polarimeter Experiment

As a part of the Project Querb non-profit, I designed a remotely controlled polarimeter experiment with a browser interface. It demonstrates polarization of light using a laser and two linear filters, one controlled by the user through a servo.

Project Querb is a non-profit organization with the goal of democratizing access to quality science experiments for everyone.

Dungeons and Dragons

As the Dungeon Master for my group of friends, I practice creative writing, performance, and improvision as I lead my friends on adventures through Tremorah, a fantasy setting of my own design.

Garage Builds

Throughout high school, my friend and I used our free time to build various gadgets. Highlights include a 5-foot pilotable "Dalek" robot, many Nerf blaster modifications, and a 6-foot tall foam hammer
