About

I have been placed in multiple positions of responsibility throughout my academic career. I have successfully served my term as Head Prefect in my high school, Al-Falaah college (a school that boasts the highest scoring matric results nationally in the year 2016). I have been a campus tutor for Mathematics, Thermodynamics and Physics and I have been allocated the highest budgeted masters research project in the history of UKZN's Aerospace Systems Research Group (ASReG). I am proficient in Solidworks CAD modelling, Simulation execution (FEA, CFD and topology optimization). My Masters has allowed me to efficiently mathematically model systems in Microsoft Excel, predict motion and analyse trends. I have presented graphical analysis of data to a wide variety of audiences both within and out of the engineering space. I am a part of the Phoenix Hybrid Sounding Rocket launch campaign as a member of the ground support team where I am responsible for the rocket lug design and oxidizer measurement systems.
