Presently on Department of Energy Fellowship pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Accomplishments at the Department of Energy include: successful completion of Phase I and II Facility Representative requirements and becoming a fully qualified Facility Representative, successful completion of the Defense Programs' Technical Leadership Development Program, completion of plasma materials research detail at Sandia National Laboratories, and federal oversight of energetic materials facility operations.
Designed and manufactured a new rheometer for measuring the normal thrust of a molten plastic in shear. Measured the normal thrust with the new rheometer for IUPAC LDPE X in large amplitude oscillatory shear. Evaluated several upper-convected Maxwell models for predicting the stress response of a polymer melt in large amplitude oscillatory shear.
Analyzed heat transfer and checked cooling system design for a reverse field pinched fusion reactor. Designed a remote manipulator and completed final design work for several parts of the manipulator. Structural analysis. Drafted several final drawings on a computer drafting package.
Objective: To obtain a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
Current Research: Studying a strongly shocked interface between two gases of different densities. Please visit the Wisconsin Shock Tube homepage. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
