I worked as an intern in Siemens Corporate Technology Research complex in New Jersey, specifically the Product Simulation & Management team. I worked on three projects during my time there:
Applying genetic algorithms to various topology optimization problem spaces
Modeling power grids as a convex, multiobjective optimization problem to determine Pareto frontiers
Applying machine learning models to enhance simulation experience of research staff.

I worked in an agile environment with a team of 8-9 developers for around 3 months. Along with various bug fixes, I was assigned to two major projects:
Porting a major product from iOS to Android. This involved using various open-source software packages including Apache Cordova to make the transition, as well as handling the release of the application on the Google Play Store. Organizing in-office testing among co-workers and beta testing with customers was my responsibility, as well as creating and decorating the company's Google Play account.
Creating a sales demo for presentation to potential customers for analytical software. I was responsible for manipulating data in a SQL database to create an environment where customers could see how their data would appear in an analytic dashboard. Understanding how to create a large amount of realistic, "real-time" data in the most efficient way was a big challenge in this project.

Performed general IT work for the university's Chemistry department. Daily work includes troubleshooting various software and hardware issues, preparing new tech purchases for student and professor use, and enforcing updates in university policy to existing devices. Examples range from wiring ethernet cords through a new building to learning a new laboratory software to teach professors how to use it effectively.
October 2016 - January 2018
Worked as the tech lead in the student-run radio station of Texas A&M. Technical responsibilities include maintaining database of music to be played, handling automatic DJ playing during non-broadcast hours, helping develop the kanm.org website, and handle all hardware issues that arise. Communicating the status of all these responsibilities to non-technical members of the station is a big part of this role.
In addition to the officer position, I also have a weekly radio show where I organize and play setlists as well as talk about music, current issues, or anything that I want, really. For just about three years now I've gone on air and talked into a microphone for an hour, which has improved my speaking skills considerably.
August 2017 - May 2018
Worked as a Team Leader in a student mentorship organization. Responsibilities included matching up upperclassmen mentors with freshman and checking up on these relationships to make sure they were beneficial to both parties. This included organizing and hosting weekly activities and meetings for around 14 people, and handling important communication between officers and members.
I've been in this organization since my freshman year and have really come to enjoy the mentorship process and what it can do for everyone involved.
