Project: Synthesis and Characterization of Inorganic Fullerene Tungsten Disulfide Nanoparticles
The project goal was to create novel electrode materials based on metal oxide aerogel / graphitic hybrids for energy storage devices. Graphene produced by thermal exfoliation of graphitic oxide included the gel formation step to produce a homogeneous distribution of the same in a metal oxide matrix with high levels of porosity.

I helped create Tungsten Disulfide spherical nanostructures from diverse tungsten percursors. The team used plasma methods, to possibly obtain perfect spherical Tungsten Trioxide nanoparticles that will be converted into Tungsten Disulfide. Spherical Tungsten Disulfide nanostructures can be used as shock absorbers.

Project: THz Absorbers Fabricated from an SU-8 Photoresist Dielectric Layer
I worked with Dr. Newman in the Space Systems Academic Group, and my primary task pertained to a project regarding launching CubeSats, very small satellites weighing from about one to four kilograms. My assignment was both theoretical and hands-on.  I worked on standardizing procedures and techniques needed to accurately measure the center of gravity of NPSCuL to validate an NPSCuL center of gravity calculator.

The purpose of the project was to conduct research within a clean-room facility and sensors lab to create a metamaterial optimized for THz absorption using various MEMS fabrication techniques and SU-8 photoresist. The material will be characterized using several tools including, but not limited to: FTIR spectrometer, elipsometer, and the surface profilometer.

Project: THz Absorbers Fabricated from an SU-8 Photoresist Dielectric Layer
I supported an effort focused on reorganization and consolidation of MOVES Gadget's Den. This is an institute resource for virtual reality devices that are used in classes and research projects. Currently they have elements of this environment described on a web site, but a description for many other devices are still missing. They wanted me to create a one-stop-shop for all input and output devices in the institute, and to create a resource that will help everyone get information about given device quickly.

Project: Enabling Wi-Fi on Lego Mindstorms
Intern: Franco RodriguezIntern: Franco Rodriguez
Major: Engineering
Mentor: John Sobelman, B.S.
Project: Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
We worked with Lego Mindstorm robots. Our main goal was to set up and initialize the new Wifi sensor that NPS had purchased. We worked with the NXT-G GUI software, but no block for the Wifi sensor has been developed for it, so we downloaded and are currently using a software called Bricx Command Center (BricxCC).

I helped setup Virtual Desktop pool for specific classroom curriculum. We designed and implemented a desktop strategy to maximize efficiency and desktop performance, while maintaining ease of use from an IT management perspective.
