WORK EXPERIENCE

Instron
Jul 2016 - Dec 2016
Mechanical Design Co-op
Norwood, MA

I designed, analyzed, and assembled unique solutions to meet customer requirements in a fast-paced environment. Projects ranged from simple adapters to complex fixtures.

  • Acted as project manager for 38 delivered custom products, while assisting in others

  • Quoted, designed, sourced material and selected finishes for components and projects

  • Utilized 3d printer to prototype and validate proof of concept designs

  • Created detailed models of systems and components using SolidWorks and EPDM

  • Created assembly drawings and installation instructions for manufacturing and customers

  • Performed risk analysis of components using SolidWorks FEA tool and physical testing

GE Aviation
Jul 2015 - Dec 2015
Infra-Engineering Co-op
Bohemia, NY

As the process owner for the site’s chemical management, I worked closely with an interdisciplinary internal team as well as several vendors to ensure continued availability.

  • Coordinated with 15 suppliers while ensuring compliance and timeliness

  • Developed and implemented a new chemical management process for the entire site

  • Reduced critical chemical shortages by more than 80%

  • Drafted detailed wire harnesses in AutoCAD to be made by outside vendors

  • Designed test methods and a fixture to stake PCB’s with high repeatability

Whitford Research Group
Jun 2014 - Aug 2014
Undergraduate Researcher
Bohemia, NY

I developed 4 computational models for protein folding simulations in addition to running, and analyzing data from over 20 biomolecule systems in search of a more accurate model.

  • Developed shell and Perl scripts to control simulations and analyze data

  • Brought folding behavior 40% closer to mimicking the natural phenomena

  • Validated accuracy of simplified protein model in depicting large-scale dynamics

  • Publication: Jackson, J.; Nguyen, K.; Whitford, P.C. Exploring the Balance between Folding and Functional Dynamics in Proteins and RNA. Int. J. Mol. Sci. 2015, 16, 6868-6889
