I am a mechanical engineer with a background intersecting the aerospace, transportation, and medical fields. My career has taken me from conducting medical device trails in animal models, to designing linear induction motors and ablative rocket engines.

I am most adept at:

  • Design and analysis of structures and mechanisms

  • Finite Element Analysis

  • Numerical models derived from first principles

  • Experimental Modal Analysis

  • Multi-Criteria Optimization and Trade Space Optimization

  • Experimental Design/Statistical Modeling

  • Digital Signal Processing, Data Engineering

  • Data Acquisition and Control Systems

  • Custom Sensor Design

I earned my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington (2016); my dissertation focused on the design of multi-axis force transducers used to quantify knee loads on skiers and snowboarders, characterize the performance of Alpine Touring ski bindings, and investigate terrain park jump safety.

Occasionally I’m available for consulting work on interesting projects contingent on contacts I currently have in place. Feel free to contact me if you need help with a project and we can discuss.
