  • BC Hydro - Power Smart – Software Developer and Report Analyst

    - Designed and programmed a database tracking tool in Excel using Visual Basic, followed by a re-design and transfer to Microsoft Access using SQL
    - Integrated a single document containing all technical project information, as a continuation to the initial database created in the first co-op term, which decreased the project entry time from 2 hours per project to 5 minutes
    - Analyzed New Construction Building Design reports and extracted data regarding high performance energy conservation measures such as heat pumps, boilers, various HVAC systems, and their interactions.

  • Flow Consulting Group – Mechanical Engineering Co-op Student

    - Selected equipment to match specific load criteria for HVAC system design including pumps, cooling towers, air handling units, fans, grilles, and diffusers, while ensuring adherence to ASHRAE code
    - Worked on plumbing design by calculating loads and fixture units, selecting equipment such as sinks and faucets, and selecting an appropriate pipe size to meet specifications
    - Contacted clients, manufacturers, and engineers in order to aid in equipment selection, design criteria, concept explanation, and project requirements

    - Used AutoCAD and Hourly Analysis Program to aid in heating and cooling load analysis by zoning areas and then inputting specific information such as window and wall types, building orientation, and internal loads including occupancy and electrical equipment
    - Conducted site visits to gather information regarding the work site, including labeling equipment locations, window types, ductwork design, and thermostat locations

  • Alberta Energy Regulator – Business and Operations Co-op Student

    - Designed comprehensive weekly and monthly reports in Excel to track statistics such as hours allocated and status of projects, to aid in resource allocation
    - Used Visual Basic to create new functionality in excel to assist in storage, classification, and organization

TECHNICAL PROJECTS

  • Ultraviolet Light Water Purification Bottle September, 2014 – April, 2015

    - Designed and built a water bottle with three other students that could, theoretically, filter and purify water by removing particulates and harmful organisms using a carbon filter and high power UV LED
    - Integrated a hand crank into the cap of the bottle to provide a way to charge the battery that powers the purification system without an external power source
    - Completed multiple written progress reports throughout the course of the project

  • Saw Safety Device September, 2013 – April, 2014

    - Designed and built a safety device to detect when a table saw operator’s hand enters a path too close to the saw blade, triggering a switch to then drop the blade below the table
    - Combined an infrared thermometer with a UV light in order to sense the change in temperature of an object in the path of the saw blade over a specific interval of time
    - Programmed the Arduino micro-controller to be able to distinguish the difference between skin, wood, and metal, by detecting the specific heat capacity of the material

  • Desktop Computer Build June, 2012

    - Assembled and wired a desktop computer using online resources, and components bought both online and in store
    - Extensively researched computer parts in order to ensure compatibility between components and reach a low price per performance ratio
