Xenon Ion Propulsion Design/Production Engineering Intern

Designed tooling of 25 cm XIPS thrusters using Pro-E and create detailed drawings for manufacturing of the tool.
Tool used to aid technicians in assembling thruster components according to specifications. Used ANSYS Workbench for thermal and structural modeling of hotforming tool in order to simulate real tool and gain insight into actual stresses incurred by tool. R&D support of 8 cm thruster which included assembling of thruster from detailed drawings and alignment of grid set.

California State University Long Beach
Long Beach, CA
January 2010 to May 2010
Instructional Support Assistant
Employed by department professor, Dr. Chen, tasked to develop MATLAB codes in Aerodynamics consisting of rocket engine
sizing and altitude compensation, Prandtl lifting line theory, and linearized supersonic flow. Code provided the means for professor to develop to create new variation in complex problems to challenge future students.
Educational Projects:

Jet Propulsion Laboratory HDU Material Handling Chain:
Dr. Alan Scott Howe
October 2010-May 2011
Systems engineer in group to design, manufacture, and assemble a hoist and material-handling system that will be
integrated onto an existing NASA built operational HDU prototype. Duties included performing finite element analysis, trade studies, risk analysis, integration of CAD model assemblies, and design of track and roller system.

High Altitude Balloon:
Dr. Aaron Ridley
January 2011-May 2011
Engineer in team that shall design and build a balloon system carrying sensing payloads to a mark of 100,000 ft.
Responsibilities included designing the structure that carries the payload to ensure its integrity form vibrational and acceleration loads during flight.

100 Hour Exam:
Dr. Darren McKague
November 2010
Individual examination to design and size a cubesat to a 1st order level. This included determining the proper orbit,
mission concept from a given scenario, and strict time limit. Task included sizing of orbits, power, thermal, ADCS, C&DH, TT&C, radiation subsystems. In addition, preliminary CAD of overall system and overall mission architecture was created.

Experimental Sounding Rocket Association:
Dr. Charles Hoult
September 2009-June 2010
Member of team tasked with designing a single stage, solid rocket to reach an altitude of 10,000 ft. Part of the payload team which was tasked with setting up infrared and visible cameras to take pictures on the descent via remote control. In addition performed the finite element analysis of the rocket and performed the analysis for possible fin flutter. Team awarded for Technical Excellence for reaching closest to the 10,000 ft.

Mission to Phoebe:
Dr. Eric Besnard
September 2009-May 2010
Part of a four person team in designing a spacecraft lander on Saturn’s moon, Phoebe. Utilized system engineering fundamentals
such as Requirement and Functional analysis, Risk Management, Trade Studies, IMP/IMS, and Work Breakdown Structure. Lead of the Power and Structures subsystems including the solid modeling, FEA analysis, and RTG power sizing.

AIAA Design/Build/Fly:
Dr. Roger Schaufele
September 2009-April 2010
Co-chairman of team tasked to build an unmanned, electric powered, radio controlled aircraft which would compete at annual competition. Responsibilities included scheduling the design and manufacturing phases of the project, and breaking down the overall system into subsystems with associated teams. Performed the CAD work and involved in the manufacturing and structural
analysis process.
CAD/CAM Design:
Dr. Barclay Gilpin
January 2009-May 2010
Design rocket nozzle using UGS NX 5.0 using free form and feature modeling. In addition, implemented CAM software to simulate the realistic machining methods within the assigned tolerances.
