    CV

    Objective:

    Secure an entry-level position in the space industry where I can learn, develop mentors, and grow my network. I wish to wear multiple “hats” while exploring my interests in astrodynamics, rocket propulsion and business.

    Academic Experience:

    Orbital Mechanics Project – Satellite Tracking                                                                          November 2015

    ·        Used MATLAB to write a code that accurately predicts when any given satellite will be visible to an observer on the ground. (Inputs: latitude/longitude coordinates of ground site, initial orbital elements of satellite; Outputs: range, azimuth angle, elevation angle, visibility condition, ground-track plot)

    ·        Program was originally developed to predict the visibility conditions of the International Space Station from Tucson, AZ - the results were accurate with data provided by NASA's JPL HORIZONS database

    Class Project - Attitude Study of a Spacecraft with a Single Reaction Wheel                               November 2015

    ·        Studied the 3D attitude and motion of a spacecraft with a single reaction wheel - including angular velocity, angular momentum, and coning/nutation angle - using 3-2-1 Euler angles and quaternions

    ·        Developed various numerical simulations of the spacecraft's motion using MATLAB

    ·        Input various inertia and orientation conditions of the spacecraft and its reaction wheel, then studied the situations such as torque-free rotation, reaction wheel spin-up, frictional damping, and energy loss

    ·         Published a technical report in AIAA format detailing the results and analysis

    Project Manager – Aerospace Engineering Senior Design Project                              September 2015-May 2016

    ·        Managed a team of six aerospace and mechanical engineering students while coordinating with a faculty sponsor to meet team goals and deliverables

    ·        Used technical aerospace knowledge and natural problem solving skills to formulate, design, and fabricate a vertical-takeoff-and-landing UAV to fulfill our sponsor’s requirements

    ·        Ran the project as if it were a formal business; considered costs, margins, and customer satisfaction; developed a name, logo, and overall brand; pitched ideas to both faculty and industry representatives

    Gas Dynamics Project – Converging-Diverging Nozzle Simulation                                                      May 2015

    ·        Wrote a computer program to simulate and analyze various situations in a converging-diverging nozzle (i.e. subsonic flow, supersonic flow, Prandtl-Meyer expansion, normal shock, oblique shock)

    ·        Inputs: gas properties nozzle geometry, stagnation conditions, and back pressure

    ·        Outputs: thrust, mass flow rate, exit pressure, exit temperature, density, Mach number, and special conditions (i.e shock location, expansion fan angle)

    Work Experience:

    Engineering and Business Development Associate – BrockTek LLC                                         July 2015-Present

    ·        Assisted the new BrockTek President with the process of company acquisition, by interviewing employees, working through legal issues, and developing a new business model and strategy

    ·        Developed business development acumen by identifying individuals and companies to partner with, starting preliminary conversations, and subsequently building those relationships into working, mutually beneficial partnerships

    ·        Expanded cross-disciplinary skills by combining engineering knowledge with business strategy thought processes and market analysis; interfaced with both the technical employees and the management team

    ·        Developed a website by envisioning, creating, and publishing an online portal that properly portrays the company’s products, services, personality, and mission

    ·        Provided technical engineering support, including composites work and systems integration/testing

     

     

    General Manager - H2knOw                                                                                     August 2014-August 2015

    ·        Launched a startup venture with three others while in the prestigious McGuire Entrepreneurship Program

    ·        Led an interdisciplinary and international team to generate an innovative business and engineering solution to global water-conservation issues

    ·        Networked with and pitched to various industry mentors, professionals, and angel investors within the entrepreneurial, academic, and technology communities of Arizona and California

    ·        Generated financial models to forecast the five-year revenues, cash flows, and other financial metrics

    ·        Gained management skills by directing the development of a suitable business model and the writing of an accompanying business plan, and gained operations skills by designing and developing several working prototypes

    Undergraduate Research Assistant- University of Arizona                                 September 2012-February 2015
