    Engineering Experience

    THESIS: Space Environment Effects Measurement and Spectral Analysis (2011-2012)

    Cal Poly Master’s Thesis:

    ·         Contributed to the production of a space environments testing system for analysis of orbital objects and debris materials.

    ·         Produced and improved a methodology for measuring the spectral effects of some space environments on spacecraft materials.

    ·         Measured the spectral effects of some space environments on a sample set of spacecraft materials.

    ·         Created a MATLAB script using numerical analysis and signal processing methods to identify individual material spectra from a combined spectrum.

    TEAM LEAD: Solar Collector (2009-2010)

    Cal Poly Senior Project:

    ·         Assisted as part of a team which designed and constructed a trough-type solar collector, with the goal of building a cost-effective solar cooking device for the developing world.

    ·         Lead the team in the second year of the project, analyzing and constructing a dish-type solar collector, for similar goals, with added focus on possible power generation applications.

    ·         The paper produced from this analysis, design, and construction is still used in continuing research by the team.

    TEAM LEAD: Systems Engineering (2011-2012)

    Cal Poly Class Projects:
