Ph.D. Researcher at the Reconfigurable Robotics Laboratory
– École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
I am currently working on the development of new robotic concepts that introduce reconfigurability and modularity into the world of robotics. For more information on the efforts of our group please visit rrl.epfl.ch.
Research Internship at the Robotics and Human Engineering Laboratory
– University of California, Berkeley
Worked on a medical device that aims to reduce fatigue at the knee during various ambulation activities by re-using stored energy and providing additional strength and support.
I developed and manufactured the entire electronic control module of the exoskeleton (using EAGLE), as well as the firmware (in C) which incorporates the control mechanisms for the device.
I combined this with a smartphone application, which I wrote in Java, to wirelessly communicate with the control module, allowing for the modification of various gait control parameters.
Internship in Risk & Portfolio Management, Trade Finance & Cash Management
– Deutsche Bank AG, Frankfurt
Analysing risk parameters for various trade finance products and their effect on risk-weighted assets (RWA). Analysis of the effects of precisely calculating RWAs with load terms of less than one year.
Development of an application that simplifies the automatic export of product definitions using Visual Basic. Preparation and presentation of key performance indicators for senior management. Created a new cost management scheme for external vendors.
Internship in Whole Vehicle Engineering
– Bentley Motors Ltd, Crewe
Development of a test matrix for endurance tests (EWP) using Visual Basic. Reviewed all existing test procedures with the management responsible and created new procedures to enhance the out-dated methods.
Development of a database and automatic report generation for the oil consumption on test vehicles using Microsoft Access and Visual Basic. Practical experience in the workshop and on a proving ground while setting up and carrying out various endurance tests.
