CURRENT

STATUS

Mechanical Design Engineer at Heli-One (No) AS.

 CAREER

OBJECTIVE

I aim to make significant contributions to the aerospace industry by engaging in technically challenging projects as a mechanical engineer. I am keenly interested in aerospace systems and mechanical design. As a mechanical design engineer, I have engaged in the full design process; from the concept phase, through to production, installation, and certification. These tasks have required a large degree of autonomy, teamwork and leadership and have exposed me to new analytical methods and new technologies such as 3D printing and 3D scanning.

 

PROJECTS

I have led and participated in a number of technically challenging projects in the aerospace industry in my current role, and in the field of space system analysis, propulsion, flight mechanics, CFD, aircraft design.

Design of a medical rack and medical equipment holders. The rack that was developed was very fast to install on the helicopter, used no tooling, and positioned critical medical equipment in a practical way. The rack design was a very elegant solution that addressed critical needs in life saving operations.

Space Systems Analysis: thesis/ internship position at DLR. The project was to assess and further develop the performance and mass estimation tools currently used at DLR. Multi-disciplinary analysis (MDA) and optimisation (MDO) methods were employed using RCEnvironment to perform sensitivity analyses and optimisation routines.

Aerospace Structures: FEA analysis of the SSME nozzle with distributed pressures and temperatures in Ansys static structural.

Flight Mechanics: development of a six-degree-of-freedom non-linear flight simulator from scratch using MATLAB, which demonstrated the stability characteristics of an aircraft for a given configuration.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD): CFD analysis with a turbulent scheme was used on the 2015 nosecone design for the formula SAE team at the University of Sydney, thereby verifying a real-life design using computational methods.

TECHNICAL

SKILLS

Programming MATLAB, Simulink, Python, basic C++, Arduino, Octave

Field Specific

Aeronautics: Inventor, Autodesk Simulation Mechanical, AutoCAD

Propulsion: Rocket Propulsion Analysis (RPA), GasTurb, Liquid Propulsion Analysis - 1 (LRP-1), Liquid Propulsion Analysis - 2

WORK EXPERIENCE

Mechanical Design Engineer (Heli-One No). October 2016 - Present

My role as a Mechanical Design Engineer has been to design innovative solutions for helicopter modifications. I have overseen entire projects, from the concept phases, through to production, installation and certification. I have worked under the EASA Part 21 J approval. The position allowed me to develop my mechanical design skills, allowing me to develop ideas in a much more practical sense, my ability to perform structural analysis, work independently and as a team, presentation skills, and take on leadership roles.

Student Intern at the Deutsches Zentrum fu¨r Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V. (DLR). August 2015 - February 2016

At my student internship role at DLR, I worked on a project thesis in the field of Space Systems Analysis. During the project I systematically assessed and developed current Rocket Propulsion performance and mass estimation tools being used at DLR. The project allowed me to develop my technical skills as an engineer, design, information seeking, and my intuition for liquid propulsion systems as well as multi-disciplinary analysis (MDA) and multi-disciplinary optimisation (MDO).

Panj (start-up)- Co-Founder and Sales Representative. 2010

The start-up experience allowed me to lead business initiatives and product design of natural products (such as shampoo & conditioner)
