    OBJECTIVE

     

    Perform technical engineering work in the field of dynamics and control with a leading company in the space industry.

     

     

    EMPLOYMENT HISTORY

     

    January 2011 to May 2011

    McGill University, Montreal, Canada

    Course Instructor, Mechanical Engineering

    ·         Course instructor for MECH 262, Statistics and Measurement Laboratory.

    ·         Developed curriculum and delivered three lectures per week related to measurement and experimentation. I am also responsible for the coordination of nine experiments performed by the students in the laboratory, which involves supervising a team of six teaching assistants.

     

    June 2009 to Present

    Canadian Space Agency, St. Hubert, QC

    Research Engineer

    ·         Research engineer with the Control Group of the Space Science and Technology department.

    ·         I am currently the project lead for mission planning for a formation flying nanosatellite project, JC2Sat. This involves developing and testing control algorithms for autonomous formation flying using differential drag as the only actuation. An advanced orbital simulation developed in Matlab/Simulink is used to assess the formation flying performance expected on orbit.

    ·         I am also a member of the attitude determination and control team for the JC2Sat mission. This involves studying the dynamics behaviour of the satellite attitude using a Simulink model, as well as testing the flight hardware. I am responsible for demonstrating a hardware-in-the-loop simulation as part of the satellite development process.

     

    June 2007 to February 2009

    Tokyo University, Tokyo, Japan

    Research Engineer

    ·         Research engineer with the Intelligent Space Systems Laboratory at Tokyo University.

    ·         My work focused on developing and testing satellite components for small-scale satellite development. This included an extensive vibration analysis of an optical lens-boom to be installed on an earth imaging satellite. The vibration analysis includes theoretical modeling and experimental system identification. The portable experimental system was tested during micro-gravity experiments I conducted during high-altitude parabolic flights.

    ·          I was also a member of the attitude determination and control system team for the Nano-Jasmine satellite. This work focused on developing a high precision control system for the satellite using reaction wheels and magnetic torque actuators, and star trackers and gyro sensors.

     

    September 2002 to April 2006

    McGill University, Montreal, Canada

    Teaching Assistant

    ·         Worked as a teaching assistant for ten mechanical engineering courses including Mechanics I (Statics), II (Dynamics) and III (Vibrations), Dynamics of Systems and Mechanical Laboratory.

    ·         Duties included substitute lecturing, instructing weekly tutorials, grading exams and laboratory reports, and supervising experiments.

     

    September 1999 to December 2001

    University of Victoria, Canada

    Teaching Assistant

    ·         Worked as a teaching assistant for six mechanical engineering courses including Machine Dynamics, Fluid Mechanics and Dynamics.

    ·         Duties included giving tutorials, grading assignments and tests, and supervising experiments.

     

    May to September 1998

    Imperial Oil, Calgary, Canada

    Project Manager

    ·      Directly managed three small-scale oil and gas field projects (< $500 K) at Imperial Oil’s Norman Wells reservoir development in the Northwest Territories.

    ·      I was responsible for managing the budget, schedule, and quality of the work according to Imperial Oil’s project implementation protocol, which involved site visits and project reviews with contractors and management.

     

    September 1997 to April 1998

    Imperial Oil, Calgary, Canada

    Reservoir Engineer

    Supervisor: Steve Brown

    ·      As a junior member of Imperial Oil’s Norman Wells’ reservoir asset management team, I worked with reservoir engineers and geologists to improve the production performance of the Norman Wells, NWT, oilfield. My first project involved a thorough study of the waterflood performance of the mainland portion of the reservoir.

    ·      As a result of the analysis, a fracture network was mapped and regions were identified where the waterflood was not effective in advancing the oil reserves. I selected two infill drilling locations and assisted with development of a drilling project. The results of my analysis were used with a reservoir simulation to obtain production predictions, and the economic impact of the proposed infill wells was estimated. I authored a project proposal and presented it to the asset management committee who granted approval for the $2M drilling program.

     

     EDUCATION

     

     

        September 2002 to November 2006

          Doctor of Philosophy, Mechanical Engineering

          McGill University, Montreal, QC

          Supervisor: Meyer Nahon

          Dissertation Title: Dynamics and Control of a Multi-Tethered Aerostat Positioning System                               

    ·          I performed a detailed analysis of an aerial positioning system which included extensive dynamics modeling and experimental investigations. The response of the multi-tethered aerostat system was predicted using a lumped-mass dynamics model subject to turbulent wind input. The model was validated by comparing the estimated behaviour to measurements of a scaled experimental system.

    ·          The performance of the system was enhanced through the design and implementation of a feedback control system. The controllers were tested on the experimental system and demonstrated high precision positioning capabilities. The dynamics model was used to develop and study advanced optimal control strategies.

    ·          The experimental phase of the project was a joint collaboration with the NRC’s Herzberg Institute for Astrophysics located in Penticton, B.C. I worked alongside several senior engineers and contributed to the development, testing and operation of the $1 million facility.

         

          September 1999 to January 2002

          Masters of Applied Science, Mechanical Engineering

          University of Victoria, Canada

          Supervisor: Meyer Nahon

          Thesis Title: Dynamics Modeling and Conceptual Design of a Multi-Tethered Aerostat

                                    System       

    ·         My thesis research project involved analyzing and developing a novel aerostat positioning system. I developed a dynamics model of the system and also designed an experimental testing facility. The design of the experimental system included choosing an aerostat with desired aerodynamic properties, selecting high-performance cables, and developing an advanced motion control system for the tether winch system. Simulations of the dynamics model provided the design specifications through an iterative optimization process. The aerodynamic behaviour of a tethered aerostat was analyzed by performing a linear stability analysis using the dynamics model.

     

          September 1994 to April 1999

          Bachelor of Applied Science, Mechanical Engineering

          University of Calgary, Canada

        ·          Graduated with internship honours after completing the requirements of the internship

                 program.

    ·          Design project was a combustion chamber of an engine for a diver propulsion vehicle.
