About

I graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Materials Science and Engineering in 2020. While I was there I used my skills to start a nonprofit designing and producing 3D printed hands for children. I now work on projects designing heavy-duty, functional, 3D printed titanium prosthetic fingers and all of the accessories that accompany them.

I have experience designing parts and assemblies using both top down and bottom up modeling methods. I also have experience assembling individually modeled parts with tight tolerances into a functional assembly and running diagnostic tests on those parts. Additionally, I have experience with 2D sketching and modeling using the aforementioned methods.

3D Models

Experience

  • R&D Engineer Point Designs LLC · Full-time Aug 2020 – Present 2 yrs 2 mos Lafayette, CO, United States At Point Designs, I operate as both an R&D Engineer and Business Development Specialist. In my role as an R&D Engineer, I model our prosthetic fingers using a top down approach in both Solidworks and Onshape. I also design accessories and other parts for use and integration with our current prosthetic products. Using my background in Materials Science, I help drive decisions on both current and future product materials to ensure maximum durability and performance.
  • Mechanical Engineering Intern Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics · Internship Apr 2019 – Sep 2019 5 mos Raleigh, NC, United States I operated and managed construction of over 400 Titanium, Copper, Molybdenum, Niobium, Tungsten, and Tungsten
    Carbide samples through Direct Metal Additive Manufacturing with Electron Beam Melting and Concept Laser 3D printers. I also explored and led development of novel approach for high density Tungsten Carbide Electron Beam Melting sample construction and characterization.
  • National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Summer Internship Program Fellow National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences · Internship Apr 2018 – Sep 2019 1 yrs 5 mos Durham, NC, United States I launched the NIEHS Makerspace to provide maker technologies and technical support to over 400 NIEHS researchers. I also designed (in Solidworks) and implemented 10 novel 3D printed capacitive touch sensors with conductive graphene PLA for Object Recognition tasks. I initiated the implementation of 3D printed capacitive touch sensors into existing task procedures and enhanced data accuracy. And lastly, I assembled and designed 3D printed Feeding Experimentation Devices for food consumption analysis in mice.
