 Embraer S.A. - Research and Development (2010-Present)
Sr. Aeronautical Engineer
Embraer S.A. is a large Brazilian aerospace conglomerate, producing commercial, military
and executive aircraft. With over 15,000 employees and a $6 billion yearly revenue, Embraer is
recognized as the third largest aircraft manufacturer in the world. As a member of the Research
and Development Department, the aeronautics group was tasked with investigating a number
of ongoing issues in aeroelasticity analysis. In particular, the aeronautics group investigated
aspects of aeroelastic/dynamics modeling, testing and design of composite structures. Selected
activities and accomplishments:
 • Helped to develop, manage and implement a plan to study advanced topics in aeroelas-
 ticity involving composite materials and nonlinear dynamics.
 • Resolved a number of ongoing issues related to modeling and testing of composite struc-
 tures at Embraer.
 • Created from the ground up several finite element models of complex equipment and
 validated the models through targeted testing. Model advanced features included: strain
 stiffening, linear and nonlinear buckling, contact, plasticity / stress hardening.

Omnisys (Thales Group) - Product Development (2008-2010)
Sr. Mechanical Engineer

 The team became the company’s first Mechanical Engineering Department.
 • Developed proficiency in vibrations and thermal analysis of space equipment (self-taught).
 This included harmonic, random vibration and shock, as well as in-orbit thermal flux
 calculations and thermal stress calculations.
 • Created, from the ground up, over a dozen finite element models of complex space equip-
 ment for vibration, thermal and stress analysis. Specified qualification testing and oversaw
 delivery of a number of models of the CBERS 3&4 equipent.
