Bio[edit]

I'm a software engineer with a B.S. in Computer and Electrical Engineering and a minor in Aerospace Studies from Michigan Tech. I'm interested in MEMS, Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing), embedded systems, computer organization and architecture, and wireless communications, however, I have a fascination with all sorts of technology and I welcome the opportunity to learn and expand my knowledge.

During my undergrad, I was a member of the Aerospace Enterprise at Michigan Tech and served as Project Manager for the Wireless Communications Enterprise on multiple projects. I also servered as the President of the Michigan Tech's chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the Engineering Honor Society [5].

Research[edit]

Summer 2014

While working as a SOCHE contractor for the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterons AFB, I performed wireless security research with a heavy emphasis on Bluetooth devices. Utilizing flaws within the Bluetooth protocol, I devised a method for intelligent stealth jamming of individual Bluetooth connections and wrote a research paper detailing how to exploit this weakness.

Summer 2013

As part of a NSF REU at Michigan Tech, I performed interdisciplinary research related to semi-truck fuel efficiency by designing and building electronic controls for full scale semi-truck transmission simulator. At the conclusion of the project, I presented research project to Michigan Tech faculty and participated in undergraduate poster presentation [6]. In addition, during the summer as part of the research program I designed an Arduino based controller and sensors for 5th wheel used to log coast down and drive cycle data with data acquisition package (PLX-DAQ) and taught a Simulink based closed loop controls seminar to undergraduate students.
