1 About Me
I am a cum laude (NYIT) mechanical engineer eager to improve myself and my environment by applying my knowledge and expertise. My main goal is being able to enhance the quality of technology to help my workplace reach its peak self-sufficiency and sustainability. Although I know that nothing is perfect, I strive to provide work that is as close as possible to perfection according to engineering standards by ensuring safety and extra precautions have been met. I have experience in communicating with people from different backgrounds since I have studied in Canada and USA in three different institutions.

8 Sample of My Work
We built a linear generator from scratch in order to convert motion due to waves and tides into electricity. The generator was built using available laboratory resources: copper wiring, magnets, 3D printing, and wood. The generated electricity is then used to power sensors on a buoy system.
Using the information of a flight such as number of passengers and crew members as well as environmental conditions, I found all parameters to fully design a commercial plane such as number of seats, wings lengths, wall thickness as well as necessary fuel and baggage capacity… etc according to the Federal Aviation Regulations 25 (FAR 25).
I analyzed the motion of a typical mechanical gas pedal system in a car via breaking down the bar linkage mechanism. The mechanism was also modeled in 3D in SolidWorks as well as analyzed using “Motion Analysis” tools.
I analyzed the motion of a typical 6 speeds gear of a manual car using the mechanism of planetary gears to increase or decrease the output (wheels) speed according to input (engine) speed.
I analyzed the motion and associated stresses of a scissor lift (elevator) for people with a wheelchair in order to help them get into busses safely. The analysis included choosing the material (based on yield stress), dimensions (based on largest wheelchairs in the market) and motor (based on weight and speed) of the lift while minimizing the weight of the lift and keeping a safety factor of 3.
We determined the appropriate spring to be using a a car suspension system to keep angular and linear motion of the car below specific values based on car’s weight, engine’s weight and engine’s torque. the issue was solved using mathematical modeling then was simulated using Simulink in MATLAB.
Given the chemical compounds of a fuel blend, inlet conditions and pressure ratio, I found the efficiency of a gas turbine engine using the lower heating value LHV of the chemical reaction. Moreover, the efficiency was also found using table data which represents idealized conditions.
I found the optimal reheat pressure of a single stage reheat steam power plant with non-ideal pump and turbines using MATLAB and numerical analysis in order to maximize the efficiency of the power plant.
We compared parallel and counterflow heat exchangers with different flows in order to find the best configuration to maximize the heat recovery.
We conducted experiments to verify the equations of conduction, convection, and radiation. We used both transient and steady conduction.
I analyzed a Rankine power plant in order to find its efficiency as well as the boiler’s and turbine’s efficiencies.
After conducting an experiment on steel and aluminum to failure, I treated the data of force and displacement to find the ultimate and yield stress of both materials. Moreover, we found both Rockwell and Brinell hardness of the materials.
Creating an electric instrument to play the first 4 notes of the Canadian Anthem using Arduino.
I researched the effects of the feeling of love or lack thereof on humans both biologically and psychologically while defining it from both standpoints. I researched what happens in the brain and the hormones when we love or get rejected in love. I also proposed that love is an essential factor for curing diseases.
