I am a senior at Michigan Technological University and I will graduate in December 2016 with my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. I have had previous engineering experience working as an intern at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) and at WEC Energy Group in Chicago.

Engineering Experience[edit | edit source]

  • Engineering Intern- Fermilab (May 2016-August 2016)
    • Analyzed cryogenic systems for the Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) experiment using finite element analysis (FEA)
    • Performed a complex safety analysis for a pump suspended inside a 17,000-ton liquid Argon cryostat
    • Completed an Oxygen Deficiency Hazard (ODH) analysis for the Short Baseline Near Detector (SBND) cryogenic equipment- SBND experiment will begin operation in 2018
    • Modified and created Process and Instrumentation Drawings (P&ID) for the Near Infrared experiment
  • Gas Engineering Intern- WEC Energy Group (May 2014-August 2014 & May 2015-August 2015)
