● Works on a small team with various backgrounds to design and manufacture high-temperature sensor technology with a SIL-3 rating
● Formulates custom designs that maintain sensing precision by considering the constraints imposed by the customer’s environment, including loads, pressure conditions, and sensing point locations.
● Strategically sources parts and employs a strong understanding of machining practices to fabricate physical assemblies from designs, while upholding international standards (ATEX, IECEx, etc.)
● Provides on-site support at refineries and chemical plants to quickly solve challenges that arise during the installation of the product
● Refines manufacturing and testing procedures to improve the quality of products
● Performs research and development to solve key problems in the petrochemical industry
○ Designed and analyzed helical strake thermowells to reduce damage from von Karman streets, and co-authored a white paper on the subject
○ Investigated using magnetism to maneuver thermocouples into challenging positions
○ Determined which component of an air flow sensor circuit should be calibrated in order to optimize the precision of the sensor’s output
EGS Lab at MIT
June 2013 - May 2015
I orginally wanted to major in Architecture before taking a tour of a machine shop at MIT.
