Work Experience

Nov '97 Present TechnoCorp, Inc. Detroit MI, USA

Working as a software consultant. Writing C programs to represent complex contours in terms of Fourier Coefficients. This enables the user to encode a complex contour easily and portable. Wrote X-window programs to show the process graphically. Accelerated the process using shell scripts.

June'97 to Oct'97 ComputerVision India (Pvt.) Ltd., Pune, India

Worked as a Software Engineer in the User Interface Group. Created Graphic User Interfaces for CADDS5. CADDS5 is a CAD/CAM tool for designing and modeling complex mechanical assemblies - used by clients like Airbus. Other responsibilities included:

 May - June, 1996 Computer Aided Design Project, I.I.T-Kanpur, India

Worked on the project, "Development of an Optimal Design Software using Genetic Adaptive Search". The work involved programming in C, C++. Analyzed the results using tools like Gnuplot and Matlab.

Assisted Dr. Deb (Asst. Prof., Mech. Dept., IIT-Kanpur) in a paper related to optimization in engineering design. The paper was sent to an international journal - "Evolutionary Computations" for publication in May 1996.The Dept. of Science and Technology, Govt of India sponsored this project.

Part Time Industrial Experience

Worked on an Industrial problem "Design of an optimal Temperature Profile for a Furnace" which was sponsored by TISCO, India.

  Worked on "Multiobjective Optimization". I took two engineering problems - Thrust Bearing Design and Belleville Spring Design problem each having two objectives to be optimized.

  Designed and fabricated a "Joystick Controlled Powered Wheel Chair". This work was sponsored by ALIMCO, India.

  Senior Year Project involved design and fabrication of a "Hydraulic Actuator Test Set-up" for ground test of the hydraulic actuators (used in the aircrafts) simulating the various parameters like mass, inertia & stiffness. This was an Industrial project sponsored by the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd., Lucknow, India.

  Worked with Dr. Amitabh Mukherjee (Asst. Prof., Mech. Dept., IIT-Kanpur) on "Shape Optimization through Fourier Transform of Contours represented in Polar Coordinates".
