EXPERIENCE

 

NOOKSLE LLC.

Co-Founder and Engineering Lead

Nooksle

Oct. 2020 - Present

  • Nooksle designs and makes medical syringes for reconstituted drugs. The company innovates convenient products that simplify procedures and increase efficiency in the healthcare workspace.

  • Design, development, and testing of the Quick-Mix Syringe. Rapid prototyped the design with SLA 3D printing technique.

  • Innovated the twist-off safety lock mechanism that will secure the components during transportation, prevent the misuses of the syringe, and automatically start the reconstituting process after twisting off the safety lock.

  • Working closely with the founder (a pharmacist candidate) to ensure the product complies with the FDA regulation.

  • Using Finite Element Analysis to validate and optimize the snap-fit design.

  • Working with injection molding (plastic and rubber) and glass manufactures to produce products within tolerances.

  • Designing the company website (www.nooksle.com).

  • Creating, rendering, and editing the syringe animation in Solidworks Visualize and Adobe Premiere Pro.

  • Collaborating in the IP management.

AMAZON ROBOTICS

Advanced Robotics Engineering Intern

Amazon Robotics

May. 2020 - Aug. 2020

  • Contributed kinematic calculation functionality to the Robotics Sketchbook project, using Python

  • Designed a sensing architecture of an articulated joint for robot in SolidWorks. Prototyped and tuned mechanical design and performance in subsequent iterations.

  • Used SolidWorks Finite Element Analysis and Design Study to automatically optimize mechanical properties of the sensing element, while taking the consideration of the available stock material for a fast prototype turnaround time.

  • Created a workflow to design such actuators for scale.

NEOCIS INC.

Mechatronics Intern

Neocis

May. 2019 - Aug. 2019

  • Update: my summer internship work has been turned into an important feature on the newly released Yomi, the world's first and only FDA cleared robotic surgery platform for the dental industry. This feature reduces the force and moment exerted on the patient by more than 60% comparing the previous generation of Yomi.

  • Created a mathematical model in MATLAB to characterize end-effector force and moment on a 7-DOF passive robotic arm.

  • Optimized mass distribution in MATLAB in order to reduce force and moment at the end-effector of the robotic arm.

  • Prototyped a working model and verified experimentally the outcome of the mathematical model.
