Computers Work Experience

The Boeing Company Everett, WA August 2001- Present Stress Analysis Engineer for the 747 commercial airplane. Rehabilitation Research and Development Center Palo Alto, CA VA Palo Alto Health Care System June 2000-June 2001 Worked as a biomedical engineer in the Neuromuscular Lab. Assisted in experiments designed to study human motor unit firing patterns in leg muscles subserving locomotor function. Scientific Learning Corporation Berkeley, CA May 1999-August 1999 Worked as a Business Development summer associate. Conducted extensive Internet based research on educational software products. Silicon Valley Group, Lithography Division Ridgefield, CT May 1998-August 1998 Worked as a summer intern doing mechanical engineering design on the Laser Illumination System for the 193nm photolithography tool. Douglas Barker Architects San Francisco, CA May 1997-August 1997 Worked as a summer intern making architectural scale models from plans and sections. Stanford University: Biomedical Device Design Team Project Stanford, CA Designed and fabricated an MRI compatible research catheter for Guidant and the Cardiovascular Research Lab at Stanford. Massachusetts Institute of Technology: Team Based Project Design Cambridge, MA Designed and manufactured a sitting and standing aid for elderly individuals. Conducted benchmark research on existing technologies, contributed to the kinematic design of the mechanism, and fabricated the sitting and standing aid. Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge, MA January 2000-May 2000 Undergraduate Thesis Project in Mechanical Engineering The research project was conducted in the Human Machine Haptics Laboratory. The purpose of the project was to design and test different surface treatments that would increase the perceived vibration of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) foil, a malleable piezoelectric material. Mentor James Biggs, Ph.D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge, MA February 1997-May 1997 Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) project involving the use of a wind tunnel in the Acoustics and Vibration Laboratory. Designed and built a new resonator test section for use in the low noise, low turbulence wind tunnel. The device was made of wood and masonite. It required construction to very high tolerances so that it would properly interface with the wind tunnel. Mentor Patrick Leehey, Ph.D.
