I am a Ph.D. candidate at the department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Central Florida, USA. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering — Energy Systems track. My senior design project involved the design, analysis, and production of a microgravity platform for the Florida Space Institute (FSI), who funded and supported the project.

I later on got my Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering — Thermofluids track where I worked in collaboration with, and got funding from, Siemens Energy Inc. to design a numerical model of a combined cycle power plant steam condenser for real-time simulations to aid in design and operational analysis.

At the moment, I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. My research topic is on the modeling, simulation, and control of floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs). This research is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy (ARPA-E) under the grant DE-AR0001187. The project aims to develop new and potentially disruptive innovations in the FOWT technology to enable a greater market share of offshore wind energy.

When I am not working on my dissertation, I am reading on machine learning and writing my own programs and libraries in Python. A good amount of my projects — not all — can be found on my GitHub and/or GitLab profiles.
