Quality Engineering and Software Technologies (QuEST) Inc.

Design Engineer | Jun 2011 - Oct 2013​

QuEST-Global is a leading engineering solutions provider to Rolls-Royce, General Electric (GE), and Pratt & Whitney etc. I worked with Rolls Royce Turbine Systems Engineering within the Quality & Improvements team focusing on geometry/CAD automation. The project I worked on, Global Turbine Design system (GT-Des), was the development of a framework to deploy multi-disciplinary optimization within the Turbine Blade design process.  Some of my major responsibilities included:​

  • Collecting requirements from designers

  • Implementing Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) tools to generate parametric features and creating Graphical User Interface (GUI)

  • Designing geometry workflow on i-sight and writing technical documentation

  • Collaborating with different stakeholders involved in the project, understanding every aspect of optimization technology and act as single point of contact for feature modifications and customer satisfaction

  • Mentoring new team members and training them on basics of aerodynamics, turbine system design, KBE and GD&T

And I worked on these projects: 


  • Won Quest's highly revered one time performance recognition award, Sep 2012

  • C-Sat (Customer Satisfaction) score of 100%, FY 2012

  • Top On-Time Delivery (OTD) performer, 2013

School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, University of Pennsylvania

Teaching Assistant | Aug 2014 - May 2017

During my tenure at Penn, I worked with several professors as their Teaching Assistant. My major responsibilities in this role included conducting recitations, mentoring and review sessions, grading course assignments & exams and try my best to help students overcome technical difficulties. I assisted with following 8 courses:

  • Foundation of Engineering Mathematics - II (ENM 511) - Spring 2017

  • Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos (ENM 512) - Spring 2017

  • Probability and Descriptive Statistics (MEAM 503) - Fall 2016

  • Analytical Mathematics for Engineers (ENM 251) - Spring 2016

  • Foundation of Engineering Mathematics (ENM 510) - Fall 2015

  • Introduction to Mechanics (MEAM 110) - Fall 2015

  • Fluid Mechanics (MEAM 302) - Fall 2015 

  • Solid Mechanics (MEAM 354) - Fall 2016, Fall 2015 and Fall 2014

Vagelos Labs, University of Pennsylvania

Research Assistant | Jun 2016 - May 2017

I worked as a Research Assistant at the Roy and Diana Vagelos Laboratories at Penn with Dr. Talid  Sinno to develop a mathematical model based on Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM). The aim of the project was to analyze solid‐fluid interactions at a mesoscopic scale representative of the platelet aggregation in the blood flow. I used D2Q9 and D3Q27 lattice structures and periodic boundary conditions for my analysis. Coupling this method with Immersed Boundry method allowed me to analyze moving boundaries. I initially wrote the code in FORTRAN, and later, I utilizing Palabos (open-source CFD solver based on LBM, with a kernel written in C++) to make my code compatible in a parallel environment. I also did multi-grid refinement in my LB grid for local mesh refinement and wrote the codes to output flow properties (velocity, density etc.) visualizable using Tecplot or ParaView or any other visualization software

Linguistic Data Consortium

Research Assistant | Sep 2014 - Dec 2014

Collected audio data in Indian accent to build audio material database for the research purposes

Volvo-Eicher Commercial Vehicles (VECV) Ltd.

Intern | Jun 2009 - Jul 2009

During the summer of 2009, I interned with the manufacturing department of VECVL and worked on a project to study the tipper of new Heavy Commercial Vehicle: Terra 25. As an intern, my responsible included discussing Engineering Drawings and manufacturing methods for inventories with different vendors and understanding their contribution. I was also exposed to Part Production Approval Program (PPAP), product life cycle development and Quality Management during a course of 4 weeks

Penn Libraries

Student Worker | Sep 2014 - May 2016

I worked  as a part-time student worker at the front desk of Rosengarten undergraduate study center at Penn libraries. My responsibilities included arranging books, assisting students and helping supervisor keeping track of the items

Real-Time and Embedded Systems Lab (mLab), University of Pennsylvania

Research Assistant | May 2017 - Present

In this project, We are creating an end-to-end tool-chain that would facilitate process from sketching to the deployment of a drone-flying mission. I am responsible for writing Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithm and launch files to attain user-defined trajectories including simultaneous flying of multiple drones, and random obstacle avoidance etc.. I am also experimenting with different visualization/simulation frameworks for best user experience. The future goal would be to integrate NLP Methods for understanding Modal Temporal Logic (MTL) inputs fed via a GUI.
