Engineering Leadership Development Program

July 2018

Accepted into Lockheed Martin's leadership development program where we complete a 3 year rotational program schedule and develop in different environments & teams across RMS. It also is giving me the opportunity to get my Systems Engineering Masters degree at Cornell University. The first year of this project entails a 9 month long project where a simulated customer environment takes teams through contract proposal all the way to product delivery and demonstration. The goal was to develop an autonomous Rover to navigate a field of objects, pickup and drop off payloads and detect an IED wire burried underground. I was the Software Lead for the team.

  • Led all software aspects of a high performing 18 person team for 9 months from project proposal to product delivery
  • Designed the software infrastructure, interfaces and heavily contributed to the technical sections of the project proposal
  • Responsible for delegating tasking, software schedule milestones and heavily relied on for I&T decisions
  • Created object recognition software with OpenCV & Python to recognize obstacles for autonomous movement
  • Designed the payload recognition software through the use of bar-codes to accurately identify payload and contents to solve a critical customer need


Software Engineer Asc.

Lockheed Martin RMS · Manassas, VA

July 2017 - November 2019

  • Redesigned the UI/UX for multiple systems and operator displays site wide on agile software development teams using Material UI design methodology, JavaScript React, Redux and JavaSwing
  • Developed a web-app infrastructure to address security concerns and provide a guarantee of running services to applications on system start-up using Golang, a scheduling algorithm and Kubernetes
  • Working in a dockerized environment
  • Used Apache Camel and Spring to create a seamless data stream between two operator applications
  • Development that heavily impacts the program's infrastructure and user interaction


Mobile Application Developer

Android Studios · Java · XML

Summer 2016

Using Google's LE Bluetooth API, I'm developing an Android version of an app called iDucer. The iDucer is a Bluetooth Smart 4.0 compatible Pressure and Temperature Transducer used for the monitoring and measurement of applied pressures and temperatures. The sensor itself sends out an update of information every second. The app recieves data in 2 bit hex format then decodes and calculates the proper value and live updates the display.

The iDucer application is compatible only with GP:50's line of Bluetooth Smart transducers. It features an innovative design that allows for wireless pressure measurements in almost any location, including remote applications where conventional pressure transducers are not practical. The iDucer app allows monitoring of features such as pressure measurement, temperature measurement, battery life, pressure range, device serial number, device model number, and manufacturer device specific information.

Undergraduate Researcher

Scala · SQL/ SQLite · Bootstrap

Summer 2016

Working on a research project called Mimir which is apart of the University at Buffalo's Online Data Interactions Lab. Mimir wraps around a traditional relational database system and allows users to explicitly track data quality through a construct called a Lens. Lenses in Mimir are analogous to stages in an ETL pipeline -- responsible for performing data cleaning or analytics tasks. Lenses explicitly track conditions that could compromise data quality. Lenses create the illusion that you're working with high quality data, allowing you to start analyzing the data right away. Using the power of provenance, Mimir can tell you how reliable your query results are, and what you can do about it. I've been working on the UI along with additional buttons to streamline data manipulation.

Engineering Intramural

jQuery Mobile · HTML · CSS · Adobe Phone-Gap

Spring 2015 Semester

Worked with a team of undergraduates at SofTrek to create a mobile app that had the functionality to:

  • Search for an individual and view simple information about the person (name, phone, email address etc)
  • Upload images from a users phone/ access the camera
  • Login system in the app using generated tokens from the server

Softrek also required that the app would be able to work on both Andriod and iOS. The team and I decided then to use jQuery Mobile and Adobe PhoneGap. These programs would allow us to do the entire app within JavaScript, HTML and CSS. Through the use of GitHub repositories, Phone Gap would compile our code into Android, iOS and Windows versions. My main responsibility was to work on the UI as well as ensure the tokenization was done correctly for login information.
