During my time at the Stanford GSB in their SIE program I participated on a team of 6 designing a new CRM system. We developed prototypes and a business model where all voice and keypad based call menus were visually represented on a smartphone for time savings for the customer and cost savings for the provider.
During my second year in my Stanford masters program I was under a Center for Design Research Fellowship sponsored by Panasonic. I was tasked to envision an electric city car for 2020 time frame and build out a concept demonstration unit.
Here you'll find the material mastered in the ME210 design course and media associated with the final project: a robot, designed and built from scratch in 3 weeks that shot marshmallow pellets at IR targets in a head-to-head timed competition.
In a project sponsored by SAP entitled "the mobility of things" I served as part of an international team developing embedded electronics in a credit card form factor to offer on-the-spot insurance for borrowed goods.
Please enjoy a collection of photos from a metal working design project. The "beta-fish tank."
In a manufacturing class my team designed a bio-degradable toothbrush with seeds embedded in the core. It would be used to teach children about environmental responsibility. The class required us to engage CM's and redesign the product through several iterations with manufacturing in mind at increasing levels of scale.
During the summer between my two years at graduate school I had the privilege of teaching at one of Stanford's Summer educational programs. I designed and executed a project based curriculum in electrical engineering for a class of students ages 14-18.
During an undergraduate summer I traveled out to UC Berkeley to work under Mike Crommie in a Condensed Matter Physics lab. I operated an STM (once the world's most powerful) and spent two months running an analysis on Dihexalquaterthiophene, for potential use as an organic semiconductor.
