OBJECTIVE:
To obtain a position as a mechanical engineer specializing in fluid/thermal and structural analysis.

EDUCATION:
THE CITY COLLEGE (CUNY), The Grove School of Engineering, New York, NY
M.E. Mechanical Engineering Presently enrolled

BOSTON UNIVERSITY, College of Engineering, Boston, MA


B.S. Aerospace Engineering May 2007
Dean’s List 2 Semesters

Skills:
Ansys, Abaqus, Pro-fe, FEmap/Nastran, Fluent, Star-CCM+, Autodesk Inventor, Catia, Solidworks,
Matlab, Machining-CNC, Linux, Microsoft Office

RELEVANT WORK EXPERIENCE:

CD-adapco, Melville, NY October 2007 – Present


Associate Engineer
• CFD experience includes analysis and redesign on air ducts feeding burners at an Exxon/Mobil facility in
Tulsa, OK. Thermal management for Daimler done in STAR-CCM+.
• FEA analysis for automotive and aerospace designs using ANSYS
• Analysis to obtain stress and strain from thermal, pressure, and acceleration affects. Analysis types include
static and transient thermal analysis, liner and non-linear with contact, buckling, and modal analysis.
• Onsite work at ITT corp. for the CH-53K Sikorsky helicopter program as stress support on metallic parts
under static and fatigue loading conditions and analysis on composite structures. All initial analysis is done
in Ansys with final analysis using FEmap/NASTRAN. Most analysis is static loading. Some buckling
analysis involved.
• Have done projects for GE Aircraft Engines, Pratt & Whitney, Teledyne, Modine, Tulsa Heaters Inc.,

SENIOR DESIGN PROJECT: “Next Generation Close Air Support Vehicle”


Goal – Design a replacement vehicle that goes farther and cruises faster than the current close air support
vehicle. Personally designed the aerodynamics of the aircraft to ensure high lift at low combat altitude,
low drag, and high cruise velocities. With use of various design tools and computational analysis these
goals were met along with satisfying cooperative requirements set out by other members focusing on
different aspects of the design.
