I am an experienced Electrical Engineer with a passion for research and design, modeling, and integration of complex electric systems. With over 6 years of professional experience, I have established myself as an Optimization Leader, continuously striving to solve complex engineering problems to improve the efficiency and performance of electrical systems.

I hold a Master's degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering from Oklahoma State University, where I graduated in May 2018. Prior to that, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering from Gitam University in India in May 2015.

My career has been marked by significant achievements in various roles. I am currently working as an Electrical Engineer at Jacobi Motors LLC., where I lead a team of 8 members in designing, simulating, and testing complex electric machines. I am also responsible for optimizing electric machines based on customer requirements, integrating electric systems with transportation drive cycles, and creating and supervising test procedures to assess system performance.

Before joining Jacobi Motors LLC., I worked as an Electrical Engineer at Houston Mechatronics Inc., where I developed evolutionary algorithms to design and optimize electric systems according to customer needs. I also collaborated with other research associates, design engineers, and algorithm developers while utilizing specialized design and simulation tools such as ANSYS and COMSOL.

My expertise in research and academia is evident from my experience as a Graduate Teaching/Research Assistant at Oklahoma State University, where I built mathematical/process models using MATLAB and Python, held training sessions for students, conducted lab sessions, tutorials, and graded assignments and projects. I also served as a Graduate Researcher, collaborating with faculty and Ph.D. scholars to design neural network-based approximate models for multi-objective problems. During this time, I had the opportunity to review journal papers assigned by my Thesis Professor, who was a Senior Editor in the Computational Intelligence sector of IEEE.

Apart from my professional experience, I have also made significant contributions in the form of patents and thesis work. I have been granted a patent for a Variable-flux memory motor and have a pending patent for a Variable-flux memory motor using a Horseshoe-Shaped magnet in combination with a HCF magnet and ferrous wedges in the center. My thesis work, titled "Advanced p-Metric based Many-Objective Evolutionary Algorithm," showcases my expertise in the field of evolutionary algorithms.

I have also been involved in various academic projects, including the design of an autonomous golf cart using Velodyne LiDAR for mapping surroundings, fabrication of a microchip involving multiple steps like RCA cleaning, photolithography, etching, and metallization, and improving evolutionary algorithms to reduce functional evaluations by developing a new fitness estimation strategy.

In terms of technical skills, I am proficient in software/tools such as Ansys Maxwell, Twin builder, Simulink, LabVIEW, and Oscilloscopes, as well as programming languages such as MATLAB, Python, GNU Octave, and C+. I am also well-versed in MS Office applications like Excel, PowerPoint, and Word.

With my strong technical skills, extensive experience in research and design, and a passion for optimization, I have established myself as a skilled and dedicated Electrical Engineer. My contributions in the field of electrical engineering, including patents, academic projects, and research publications, are a testament to my expertise and commitment to excellence.
