International experience

NEI Corporation Somerset, NJ                                                                            2011 to 2015

An application driven company that utilizes nanotechnology to develop and produce advanced materials.

POLYMERS/COMPOSITES GROUP

Collaborated with design team to conceive and create innovative product concepts and provide production support.

  • Became an expert in electrospinning to introduce the technology into the company for synthesizing advance nano-scale fibers which provide new materials properties into composites.
  • Designed and implemented a new transparent armor stack for rock strike-resistant and abrasion-resistant applications.
  • Produced complex proposal design work for the Army, Navy, Air Force, NASA, and Disney Research; developing advanced composite systems and polymer matrix composites and providing novel polymer fibers for new initiatives by Disney.

University of Maryland College Park, MD                                                         2008 to 2011

Graduate Research Assistantship

BIOMATERIALS RESEARCH GROUP

  • Executed and led the design, analysis, and testing of DNA modified by gene therapy carriers to elucidate the mechanism of gene delivery into cells.
  • Collaborated with University of California at Berkeley to learn how to design and build an optical tweezing instrument, which required a versatile tool kit of skills to complete – circuit board assembly, software and coding troubleshooting, and laser and optics assembly.

Rutgers University Piscataway, NJ                                                                     2006 to 2007

Undergraduate Research Assistantship

OPTICS RESEARCH GROUP

Investigated the effects of metal coating on the optical properties of hollow glass waveguides during processing using several characterization techniques.
