Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Manufacturing Demonstration Facility, Knoxville, TN
- Summer 2014: Programmed slicing engine for use with ORNL’s two large-scale additive manufacturing machines using C++ and C#. Software was used to print the world’s first 3D printed car.
Siemens Medical Systems, Knoxville, TN
Summer 2013: Implemented embedded system control software using MQX RTOS on an ARM9 processor. Development included interfacing with GPIO, I²C, SPI, CANopen, RS-323, and Ethernet. Embedded software supported interfacing to LEDs, LCD, FPGA, Temperature and Humidity sensors, EEPROM, DACs, SFP+, and a Power Controller. Designed a C# testing interface to communicate with the processor over TCP/IP.
Summer 2012: Designed a system using an Altera Stratix IV FPGA development board to read data from two TI 1 GHz ADCs. Developed a NIOS II FPGA soft-core running µC/OS-II using Quartus II. Designed a C# application to interface with the development board using UDP/IP.
Summer 2011: Used C# and ASP.NET to develop a database-driven website to keep track of employee’s tasks. Learned and utilized LINQ to access the SQL database records.
