 Variable Displacement Hydraulic Pump (VDHP): Designed VDHP to meet grant requirements, design involved collaboration
between Ekso and sub contractor. Pump design parameters were optimized to maximize efficiency of pump as well as meet
packaging requirements.
 Mechanical Design Lead - Senior Project: Worked with a team of three other students to design and manufacture a three-axis CNC
plasma cutting system. Responsible for design of virtually all mechanical components of the machine, such as the linear guide
rails, rack and pinion drive system, and gantry structure. All parts were modeled in SolidWorks and a commercial FEA package
was utilized to produce optimal geometries that reduce cost and weight. Worked with controls engineer on drive system
development to ensure final specifications of machine will be met. Project won Frank Jarrett Design Award for most outstanding
student project in machine design. For more information please see project website:
 Formula SAE Chassis Fixture Design: Worked with another team member to design a fixture to locate every tube and suspension
pickup point of the chassis during manufacturing. The fixture was composed of laser cut 11 gauge steel plates with an
interlocking design to provide efficient, accurate, and cost effective solution.
