I am a graduate student dedicated to solve engineering problems utilizing my academic knowledge, professional experience as well as research expertise.
As a mechanical engineer, I acquired my professional experiences from industry as well as from experimental research. In my former experience, I was associated with a Houston based Oil and Gas Company, Oceaneering. There, as a Product engineer, I was responsible for developing sub-sea hardware, which was a multi stage task from generating concept design to standardization and then releasing them on PLM. The robustness of the job made me expert in Solidworks, AutoCAD, Mathcad, MS-Office, and Enovia while giving a good exposure in ANSYS, COSMOS and engineering standards. The consistency in the quality of my work, along with my attitude to step-up and take on challenges, got me to lead a team for migration of COTs to PLM and also earned me two quality excellence awards. Soon I became representative head of one of the manufacturing sites to provide complete technical support. In subsequent time, I got certified as Mechanical Design – Professional by Dassault Systèmes.
At present, I am a graduate research assistant at university of Texas, Arlington. My research area lies in structural health monitoring and my project is funded by Office of Naval Research (ONR). The objective of this project is to develop fiber optic sensors to overcome the problem of cross sensitivity in measuring strain and temperature at the same time. Being a multi-disciplinary field, it requires rigorous work in fiber optics, mechanical design & Modeling, simulation, data interrogation, and programming. My critical thinking and problem solving skills have not only led to the completion of this project beforehand but have also provided this research a platform and a fresh new direction to work in. Its success can be well counted from the publication of two papers within the short span of time while the third paper is in review.
