Experience

Carrier Corporation - United Technologies

  • New Product Development Intern – Summer 2019

Through an Internship with Carrier, I owned a clause of the 2024 IEC Safety Standard, and I overhauled the engineering building’s inventory system.

I successfully wrote a succinct and effective Standard Work for my clause of the IEC standard, and I implemented an inventory management solution that cost the company $22,000, but will save ~$36,000 annually.

Purdue IEEE Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle (ROV) Team

  • Mechanical Head – Summer 2020 to Present
  • Tools Team Lead – Summer 2019 to Spring 2020
  • Tools Team Member – Fall 2018 to Spring 2019

As a 3-year member of the team, I now lead the development, manufacturing, and implementation of all mechanical systems for the ROV ahead of the MATE international competition.

My role also focuses on the education of new members, including CAD, CAM, Engineering Design, Designing for Manufacturing, and CNC Machining. I train the new mechanical members in these various fields, and help them to find innovative and effective solutions to the competition design challenges.

Boiler Gold Rush

Spring 2018 - Fall 2018
As a "Team Leader" for Boiler Gold Rush, I underwent weeks of training in order to receive 18 first-year Purdue students and acclimate them to campus. Throughout orientation week, I led these students, built a bond with them, and facilitated activities that ranged from basic activities, like getting to know campus, to more complex ones, such as discussions on Purdue's commitment to freedom of expression, and what it means to be open and accepting of beliefs that are different from your own.
