Product Engineer at Siemens Healthcare
Worked in R&D for diagnostics division of Siemens Healthcare. Responsibilities included reliability engineering of clinical chemistry systems and immunoassay systems using DFSS, design of experiments to test new prototypes, and the extensive use of CAD for designing and prototyping instruments. Additional Accomplishments: • Designed experiments to test new prototypes and submitted thorough verification protocols. • Used SolidWorks to make design improvements to mixing instrument. • Improved design of mixing arm instrument to reduce vibration by 75% and decreased operating temperature by 15%. • Implemented and tested the performance of design changes to photometer instrument (using DfSS) that would save a projected $100,000 a year in manufacturing costs. • Optimized test tube barcode reading system and reduced read errors by 50%.

R&D Reliability Engineer at Siemens Healthcare
Worked as a part of a team to improve the design and performance of medical diagnostic prototypes by utilizing Design for Six Sigma techniques. Team specialized in the optimization of motion profiles and motion error analysis. Team efforts resulted in lower failure rates of various prototype subsystems as well as a reduction in the number of costly unplanned service visits for existing products. At the completion of my internship, I presented my accomplishments to a group a several project managers who utilized my findings and motion optimization techniques in the development of future products. Additional Accomplishments: • Personally initiated discussions between outside consultants and project members to facilitate team communication and to work through roadblocks • Participated in weekly meetings to assure timely completion of projects and to maintain communication between different departments. • Optimized existing subsystems to perform much more reliably under different environmental conditions. • Excelled in experiment design, 3D modeling in SolidWorks, fixturing, and team leadership.

Biomedical Engineering Intern at Rex Medical
I worked as part of a team to develop medical device products and I provided hands on support for testing of prototype products, consumer devices, and materials. I also helped build, wire, and organize an ISO certified cleanroom for prototype testing. Additional Accomplishments: -Routed and wired building-wide nitrogen gas/compressed air variable delivery system. -Created and submitted official FDA documented device testing/experimental testing reports. -Designed, built, wired, and programmed a custom tank pressure monitoring/datalogging system under own initiative. This system would allow for the simultaneous monitoring of six separate nitrogen tanks over wireless network.
