Electrical Engineer & Mechanical Designer

I am an Electrical Engineer & Mechanical Designer at OATI, currently focussed on the electrical and
mechanical design of devices used in AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure).
Prior to this position I was a full-time Electrical Engineering student at the University of British
Columbia where I specialized in Energy Systems Design. I have a passion for this particular field
of electrical engineering & experience with mechanical fabrication methods. This led me to an
engineering career at OATI.
The best part of my job is being able to actively participate in the entire product development cycle.
To elaborate, I find it immensely satisfying to draw a concept on a whiteboard, develop it in software
(Altium or Solidworks), and finally make it ‘alive’ or tangible in a physical PCB or Plastic Part.
Due to the dynamic nature of work at OATI, there are many opportunities to cross disciplines and
interact with various departments. My favourite interactions are with the Manufacturing Department
as they work with the Engineering Department to resolve the logistical challenges of bringing a
product to market.
I am always interested in hearing from other electrical engineers, engineering alumni from UBC and
musicians, so feel free to contact me if you would like to connect.
