About

Highly motivated and creative Master's of Mechanical Engineering graduate, with well developed skillset in digital manufacture and a strong academic history, who enjoys the application of CAD software to real problems.

I have successfully used Solidworks in a number of real world and academic projects. Extensive design work includes development of a wave powered marine marker buoy for use in rough seas to the design of a community slow sand water filtration device in a small town in Nothern Peru.

Additionally, I have several years of experience using Autodesk Inventor, which I use primarily for personal projects.

If you are interested in other things I have designed and implemented, or if you want to know more about my experience please don't hesitate to contact me.

Experience

  • Project Engineer Senvion Ltd. · Full-time Jan 2018 – Aug 2018 7 mos Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom I recently completed an 8 month placement at Senvion, a global wind energy company, where I worked
    as both a Reliability and Service Engineer and a Project Engineer. As a Reliability Engineer I engaged in fault analysis, design upgrade and performance improvement developments, customer support and technical assistance.
  • Lead Project Designer Engineers Without Borders · Part-time Jan 2017 – Jun 2017 5 mos Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom My team and I developed a water storage solution with an integrated filter design for use in a rural town in Northern Peru. Selected in May 2017 for grand finals, as one of the top designs in the country. We reached the final 5 teams in the U.K. for real world implementation in Lobitos, Peru.

    I worked as a designer, project manager and researcher for this project.

Education

  • Edinburgh University Master of Mechanical Engineering, Mechanical Engineer 2014 – 2019
  • Anna University Master, Mechanical Engineering 2017 – 2017 I travelled to Southern India to attend a University-run programme of lectures and lab visits with
    themes in relation to emerging renewable energy devices, sustainable engineering solutions and global
    advancements in technology.

    The programme focused on engineering in cities, particularly in relation to energy storage for renewable devices, prospects of carbon capture technologies and electric vehicle advancements, as well as social engineering towards quality of life improvement.

    The programme also detailed engineering in rural Indian communities particularly in relation to integrating emerging renewable technologies through demonstrative labs on renewable and sustainable devices implemented on a larger scale and how they can be scaled down.
