FIRST Robotics mentoring 2014 Through Bloomberg LP's sponsoring of the FIRST Robotics Competition, I had the chance to mentor a great group of high school kids in various mechanical engineering related skills and technologies, as well as demonstrate some more advanced techniques
Project HAL HAL stand for High Altitude Launch, and yes it's also a reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey. The primary focus of this project was to build up some hands-on engineering experience by attempting to launch a rocket from a high altitude balloon. Let me just say it's been harder than I thought!
Project LowRider Project to modify an engine hoist to allow it to fit under a CNC machine with only 3.5" of clearance.
1D Heat Transfer Analysis Software A small applet I made while working as a thermal analyst for a rocket engine development program. It just does some basic thermal calculations and spits out graphs all from a nice GUI interface.
The Salyut 7 repair mission As seen on arstechnica.com! An article about a bold and highly successful attempt by the Soviets to repair a space station that had lost all communications as well as all electrical power (here's the best part: it's not fiction!).
