Undergraduate Projects

  • Senior Design Capstone Project January - December 2016
    Contributors: Buchanan J., Krieger B., Martin B., Saul E., Schriever J., Richter J.
    • Collaborated with a multi-disciplinary team in the design, development, and fabrication, and testing of a rotational headrest adapter for a client with cerebral palsy.
    • Iterated and finalized design based on functionality tests, design specifications, and client feedback.
    • My major contributions include part fabrication and functionality testing.
  • Statistical Analysis Experiment for 3D Printing Spring 2016
    Contributors: Levy J., Martin B., Richter J., Scheatzle D., Tuthill N.
    • Conducted a thorough statistical analysis by collecting experimental data.
    • Analyzed empirical data and monitored the degree of accuracy of the printing process using control charts.
    • My major contributions include: 3D modeling the parts to be measured, iterative DOE analysis to determine significance of factors.

Professional Interests

  • Design/Analysis of mechanical components in commonplace items (i.e. identifying the manufacturing process of a part, the forces acting on the part, estimating failure modes)
  • Open-ended projects that provide space for creativity
  • Practical applications/benefits of thermodynamic systems
  • Quality Control and Industrial Statistics
