Work Experience

Product Engineering,Menlo Micro                     September 2017 – Current
Software Test Engineer,Menlo Micro                     July 2017 – September 2017
Worked under the mentorship of a senior engineer through the development and implementation of an automated tester for the worlds smallest, quickest, and most reliable MEMS switch. Designed test software architecture to increase throughput and modularize functions for quick test implementation without loosing customizability.

  • Designed and automated test software to cycle and measure device performance parameters using LabWindows/CVI.
  • Developed a C library executing SCPI commands to source and measure current, voltage, and resistance through a Keithley 24XX series SMU.
  • Configured a micro-controller to send digital signals (SDI) to control on board switch driver.
Head of Software,SEDS UCSD December 2016 – June 2017

Served as team leader for six software engineers, setting benchmarks for design, testing, and validation of a Cryogenic Bi- Propellant Liquid Fire Rocket Test stand.

  • Software team tasks were to record and display a status indicator for the propulsions system, controls for valve actuation, leak checks, cold flow, hot fire, and aborts all through the use of the Data Acquisition Unit.
Embedded Systems Engineer,SEDS UCSD September 2016 – June 2017
Participated in a NASA research project building a Cryogenic Bi-Propellant Liquid Fire Rocket Test Stand. Created an 8051 architecture micro-controller firmware for two systems.

  • Firmware allows operator capabilities of overriding an automated testing sequence remotely with manual control.
  • Firmware forwards the status of the propellant valves to the operator and test controller while commanding valve actuation from either the control box or test controller via a 12 channel multiplexer.
