Applied Control Engineering Projects

July 10, 2017 - Present

InTouch HMI

Created a dual-screen HMI application for a balance of plant system using Wonderware InTouch v11.

FactoryTalk ME

Concurrent with InTouch HMI development, produced a PanelView HMI to provide local control system access.

FT AssetCentre

Configured two dedicated FactoryTalk AssetCentre machines for backing up customer programs.


Developed a handful of reports for daily, weekly and monthly wastewater discharge totalizations.

Honeywell DCS

Programmed sequential flow charts and control modules for a new distributed control system.

SQL Server

Developed stored procedures for executing periodic database backups.

APACS Process Suite

Simulated a series of control system problems in order to teach troubleshooting techniques to new engineers.

Web Crawler

Engineered a crawler in Python for pulling data off of the web, then created an Excel script for sorting it.

Excel VBA

Built various tools including an InTouch tag sorter and a resource utilization app for project management.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Projects

Design, Manufacturing, and Marketing Final Project

September, 2016 - May, 2017

Over the course of two semesters, myself and a team of MBA students traced the new product development process. From market research and conceptualization, to plant design and logistics, to a detailed marketing roll out plan, we developed an idea into a feasible product.

The result: a smoothie shaker.


CRISPR Golden Gate Assembly Design Automation

January, 2017 - May, 2017

Developed a MATLAB script for automating the design of plasmids for transformation into E. coli. This was the culmination of two and a half years of research in the lab of Professor Mattheos Koffas, working with Brady Cress.


Descriptive Statistics Challenge - First Place!

November 14, 2016 - November 19, 2016

On Monday, eleven competing teams received a package of data from health insurance provider CDPHP. Over the next five days, teams attempted to produce visualizations which would be presented on Saturday to members of the Lally School as well as CDPHP. Following two rounds of judging, my team was selected for first place due to the unique story our analyses conveyed and the power of our interactive Tableau workbook for facilitating management decisions.

Corn Stover to Jet Fuel Poster

January, 2016 - May, 2016

Designed a corn stover to jet fuel refinery and investigated its feasibility. This involved scoping the project, designing the chemical processes and simulating them in Aspen Plus, planning the plant layout, and performing economic and safety analyses. The final plant design (after a series of revisions) was then tested for feasibility and merit as an investment.
