For my Sustainable Energy Engineering MSc thesis, I made a publication quality app for assisting in the installation of photovoltaic panels and solar water heating panels. It also assists in performing the initial site surveying. For more details, see the Helios page.
Visual Design for Scientists
During Spring 2014, I took a class entitled “Visual Design for Scientists.” In this class I improved my ability to create presentations in various media including interviews, videos, and slideshows. Here are two animations I made that demonstrate the optical component called an Etalon.
I animated the following video using Blender testing its physics engine.
I also designed the following poster as part of the class.

My Summer 2012 research involved using a sol-gel based method to synthesize and spin coat titania thin films. I then characterized the films through electrical measurements, scanning electron microscopy, and x-ray diffraction.
