I am an electrical engineering professional with a passion for electric vehicles and the software that controls them. In my current position as a Ford College Graduate in Electrified Powertrain Engineering I am allowed to contribute to all phases of automotive development through five, 6 month rotations. So far these have included Electric Motor Controls and Calibration, Manufacturing Test Engineering, Software Development for small gas engines, and even a couple of weeks on the assembly line. Each rotation provides a new set of projects and objectives that help me improve both as an engineer and an overall employee.
Being involved in a budding technology such as electric propulsion me great satisfaction and a real sense of purpose in that I am helping solve one of the worlds foremost engineering challenges. I can only hope to continue to further my knowledge in the area of electric vehicles in order to make them a feasible solution for the future.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude in May 2013 with a BSE in Electrical Engineering from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
I'd love to connect with more interesting people who share the same (or different) interests as me, so feel free to contact me.
