In my freshman year, I was involved in the design and manufacturing of the shifter and steering subsystems. In my sophomore year, I was the electronics subsystem lead. This meant that I designed and analyzed the electronics system, including custom PCBs for power distribution and dashboard displays, 3D printed enclosures, and the fabrication of a wire harness. In junior year, I became involved in engine development and testing, including dynamometer tuning and engine building. This year, I continued to further my engine knowledge as well as became captain in charge of all powertrain systems.
In my role as Teaching Assistant for the 2014 Summer STEM class, I served as a mentor and a teacher to thirteen high school students. I helped develop experimental labs as well as design projects for the students relating to Formula SAE race car design. These projects included carbon fiber suspension testing, aerodynamic body design and manufacturing, and live data acquisition of tire temperature data.
