Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my website. This is my professional portfolio.
I work at Sycon Sensors to develop temperature measurement probes and thermal analysis devices for iron and steel industry. 
I enjoy managing heat by moving it around! I have assisted in developing thermal solutions for smartphones, metal casting and solar energy storage projects.
Hyperlinks are not working! Apologize for the inconvenience. I am working on it (Aug 29, 2017 update)
