RG Group: Electrical Engineering Intern and Electronics Technician - Summer 2014

  • Assisted with design, calibration, production methods, and manufacturing of the TOMI SteraMist decontamination system.
  • Troubleshooting legacy control systems and circuit boards in order to upgrade.
  • Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide and then applied a high voltage to the spray to transform it into a Reactive Oxygen Species. This causes cellular disruption of harmful organisms.
  • Designed for sterilization use in the medical industry.

Engineering Projects

16-Bit Computer Architecture

  • Designed a simple programmable 16-bit architecture and memory system.
  • Fully documented in report and presented to ABET during reaccreditation.
  • Later wrote an assembler to make programing much faster and simpler.

Wireless Water Quality Probe

  • Uses dissolved oxygen, Ph level, and temperature sensors to gather long-term data on a body of water, casing designed in SolidWorks then 3D printed.
  • Uses Wi-Fi to upload data to webserver for easy data retrieval.
  • Weatherproof to withstand long term environmental data.


  • Experience programming in C, C++, Java, x86 and 8051 Assembly, Mathematica, and MATLAB
  • In depth knowledge of SolidWorks, Eclipse, C, Logisim, Python, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Phoenix Contact and Siemens PLC’s
  • Experience with Inventor, Spice, Ladder Logic, FPGA’s, circuit prototyping, Solid Edge
  • Great time management, teamwork, leadership skills, and a hunger to learn

Personal Activities


  • Vice President of Elizabethtown College’s Robotics and Machine Intelligence Club. Constructing a competitive land robot with full image processing.
  • Mentor in the Elizabethtown Public Library S.T.E.M. Xplorer’s Club, an after school youth science education club. Competes in the annual SeaPerch robot competition.
  • Personal projects with Arduino and Atmel microcontrollers. Many of these led into the design of the Water Quality Probe.

High School

  • Section and Student Leader in Spring Grove’s Marching Band and Drumline.
  • Member of Students Against Destructive Decisions (S.A.D.D.) for all four years.
