^ RESEARCH EXPERIENCE


1999-present Graduate Student Researcher, University of California-Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Berkeley, CA

  • Created a photofragmentation technique to control nano-particle size and fractal dimension.

  • Studied soot formation, production and morphology in an inverted, co-flow, non-premixed flame with SMPS and photofragmentation-fluorescence.

  • Created a controllable source of combustion generated particles (mean diameters 30 to 250 nm).

  • Developed laser diagnostic technique using laser photofragmentation-fluorescence to detect cerium, a diesel fuel additive.

  • Measured O2 concentration profiles for electrically induced microbuoyant droplet flame with LIF.

1998-1999 Mechanical Engineer, National Wind Turbine Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Golden, CO

  • Designed equipment for strength testing of wind turbine blades.

  • Analyzed material properties of Sitka Spruce for 15kW turbine blades.

  • Used Ansys Finite Element Analysis and Mechanical Desktop software programs as design tools.




1997 Undergraduate Engineering Co-op, Data Storage Department, Imation Corporation (3M),

St. Paul, MN

  • Created new programming method for robotic coordinate measuring arm to perform dimensional analysis on data cartridges.

  • Assisted Imation industrial customers to implement the computer program changes.




1996-1997 Undergraduate Researcher, Hydro-Power Generator Project, Lancaster University, England

  • Designed and built attachment arm to hydro-power generator to control degrees of freedom.

  • Experimentally tested efficiency of generator and observed vibrational movement.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE





Fall 2002 Invited Lecturer, Energy and Resources Group, University of California at Berkeley

  • Lectured on thermodynamics related to combustion energy generation systems.




Fall 2001 Graduate Student Instructor, Energy and Resources Group, ^ University of California at Berkeley

  • Worked closely with Prof. Kammen and Prof. Koshland to restructure “Energy and Society,” an interdisciplinary course on energy systems, pollution, and economic analysis. Held weekly discussion sections and office hours. Co-created homework sets and exams. Received Outstanding GSI award from university.




Fall 2001 Attended ME 301: Teaching Mechanical Engineering at the ^ University of California at Berkeley

  • Discussed effective teaching strategies, alternative learning styles, and use of media resources.




Summer 1996 Undergraduate Summer Teaching Assistant, Mechanical Engineering Department, Montana State University at Bozeman

  • Developed curriculum and designed and constructed lab equipment for heat transfer experimentation laboratory.
