Areas of Expertise Industrial Processes Oil & Gas Energy & Power Systems Product Engineering Rapid Prototyping Research & Development Project Planning Risk Management Energy Cost Analysis Full Product Life Cycle Control Systems Product Testing & Inspection Training & Mentoring Lean Manufacturing Systems Modeling Recent Relevant Experience 8+ years of progressive, professional growth at Solar Turbines Inc. * Headquartered in San Diego, CA, Solar Turbines - subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc. - is one of world's leading manufacturers of industrial gas turbines, with more than 15,000 units and over 2 billion operating hours in over 100 countries. Senior Mechanical Design Engineer 2016 - Present Lead team to refine technical mechanical part and assembly drawings to capture design intent and document key aspects necessary to accomplish manufacturing goals as well as create complex mechanical components including sourcing, dynamic models, key performance parameters, etc., with specific focus on Rotor and Gear Systems. Specific Accomplishments: Rotordynamics: Improved rotor balance quality and decreased testing costs through assembly process optimization of 4 large engine programs within power range 10 - 17 [megawatt]. Lean Manufacturing: Enhanced product performance through active design, analysis, manufacture, and testing of fluid film bearings for a 16 [megawatt] gas turbine that reduced vibration amplitude. MATLAB: Developed algorithms for blade sorting of axial compressors resulting in dramatically reduced manufacturing times around 150 hours per week. * Process Optimization: Improved both surface quality and dimensional conformance by optimizing electron beam pattern welds for steel and nickel alloys.
