Mechanical Engineer Intern, Medical Devices Team, Let’s Gel Inc. 08/2015 – 12/2015
• Designed new disposable Operating Room Positioning Aids with contoured shape via SolidWorks
• Tested and fabricated product prototypes; assisted in tooling and packaging process
Mechanical Engineer Intern, Offshore and Marine Technology Center, Honghua Co., Ltd. 12/2014 – 01/2015
• Assembled 3D knuckle boom crane model in Inventor; turned into 2D surface model for quicker (60 seconds compared
to 3 hours) and more precise analysis using ANSYS Workbench
• Optimized model by adding MPC in ANSYS APDL and analyzed it in 5 different situations according to API
• Verified results by comparing to ADAMS model and improved design by showing weakness and redundancy
Lab Intern, Gas-Stand Team, Honeywell 08/2012 – 12/2012
• Guaranteed progress of gas experiment by precisely designing adapter to match every type of turbochargers and releasing
at least 4 CAD drawings per day using CATIA

Core Member, ZEAL Eco-Power Car-Racing Team, TJU 03/2012 – 03/2013
• Made transport and repair of car easier by designing and manufacturing first trolley of team; tested strength by FEA and
making prototype
• Carried out experiment on vacuum technology and mechanical behavior of carbon-fiber to turn whole body structure from
semi-integral to integral, and thus made car more energy-saving
• Strengthened and lightened front axle by replacing aluminum with composite materials (decreased maximum stress by 300%
and weight by 30%); ensured stability by FEA
Research Assistant, Research Institute of Railway and Mass Transit, TJU 03/2011 – 09/2012
• Received more accurate simulation results to test influence of damper on railway more precisely by adding parallel stiffness
and turning jigs from fixed to removable; modeled in SolidWorks
• Controlled bogie performance by changing the damping coefficient collected from LabVIEW in MATLAB
