1st and 2nd Year Engineering Students

Maths Mentor

Faculty of Engineering, The University of Sheffield

January 2024 - June 2024 (5 Months)

  • Supported 1st and 2nd year engineering students, improving their confidence and skills in mathematics and statistics, crucial for their academic success.

 

  • Conducted one-to-one sessions with mentees, providing personalised support suited to individual needs.

Development of Soft Robotics Implant for Short Bowel Syndrome

Summer Internship

Insigneo Institute, The University of Sheffield

July 2022 - September 2022 (8 Weeks)

  • Executed a thorough literature review of 30+ articles on soft robotic implants, specifically on treating Short Bowel Syndrome, gaining insights into the syndrome’s aetiology, symptoms, risks, diagnoses, and impacts.

 

  • Acquired practical skills and expert training on soft robotics implants, such as the use of medical-grade silicone for development, operating a Shimadzu tensile tester for strain measurement, utilising vacuum chambers for silicone de-bubbling, 3D printing for implant mould production, and oven curing of moulded silicone implants.

 

  • Engineered, designed, and produced 5+ bespoke implant prototypes in compliance with specific clinical requirements; developed 3+ design variations for statistical comparison to determine the most efficient design that minimally affects other apertures when one (or more) hole is pressurised.

 

  • Performed an in-depth evaluation of prototype performance using measures like elongation capacity and force output, implemented a hardware control system with closed-loop control for enhanced efficiency, and produced a project summary poster, briefing the overall findings and developments of the project.

Transitioning to Renewable Energy in Aviation

Engineering You're Hired 2022

The University of Sheffield

February 2022 (1 Week)

  • Collaborated with 5 multidisciplinary engineers to address sustainability challenges in aviation by reducing fossil fuel usage; proposed integration of an electric version of ATR 72-600 into the fleet by 2050.

 

  • Awarded distinction (1 of 5 out of 48) and 2nd place out of 8 groups.

 

  • Prepared technical bid report evaluating 7 factors including power choice, safety, and infrastructure modifications by allocating 9 tasks among 5 members based on their interests and technical expertise.

 

  • Received excellent feedback from 5 industry experts.

 

  • Conducted research on aviation battery requirements, feasible charging methods, and energy density needs to conclude that Lithium-Air batteries are ‘best in class’ for electric aviation.

Water Management in Lobitos and Piedritas

Global Enigineering Challenge 2021

The University of Sheffield

January 2021 - February 2021 (1 Week)

  • Led 5 cross-faculty students to conduct STEEPLE analysis, develop and evaluate 4 engineering designs, and perform 6 in-depth calculations to increase water supply reliability by 150% (6 hrs/wk to 15 hrs/wk). 

 

  • Achieved 75% cost savings over traditional methods.

 

  • Devised a weighted scoring matrix with 8 criteria to assess the commercial and engineering feasibility of 4 solutions; prioritized sustainability and cost to select a solution for the detailed design phase.

 

  • Identified 5 critical risks out of 8 potential risks by constructing a probability and severity matrix; developed risk mitigation strategy to minimise the overall risk impact score for the selected solution.

 

  • Engaged with 4 academic experts to achieve 2 opportunities in the project resulting in 10% cost-savings.

 

  • Attained 100% satisfaction rate from the team for organising 2 daily check-in meetings to track progress, identify bottlenecks and prioritize tasks on critical path; successfully completed project within the 1-week deadline.
