About

I grew up in Lincoln NE. I moved to Ames in 2001 to pursue my Mechanical Engineering (ME) Degree at Iowa State University (ISU). I completed two undergraduate internships for Fisher Controls (McKinney TX, 8/04-12/04) and Eaton Hydraulics (Spencer IA, 5/05-12/05). I started working for Dr. Matthew Frank in the Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) department's Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing lab as an undergraduate in January 2006. I took a summer internship with Sauer Danfoss (Ames IA, 5/07-8/07). I finished my ME B.S. in May 2006. I was accepted as a Masters student in IMSE at ISU in August 2008 and added a minor in Human Computer Interaction. I was a graduate research assistant working on a Rapid Prototyping system built for a CNC machine by developing software in C++ on top of MasterCAM. I completed my M.S. in August 2008 with my thesis: Computer Aided Process Planning for a Rapid Prototyping System using a Genetic Algorithm. I then worked in industry for a composite manufacturing company, Royal Engineered Composites. I quit that job in 12/10 and am now an interdisciplinary PhD student back at ISU.
