Senior Project: I worked with a team of students to analyze the behavior of a test facility for the Westinghouse AP1000. My particular job was to model the simulator’s reactor core using SolidWorks and to help write the technical papers involved. After much hard work and effort working on my own and as a part of the team we finished the project with top marks.

Master of Science Thesis: My thesis was a solo project undertaken with the guidance of my thesis advisor. The focus was on designing and simulating a test facility for a heat pipe coupled and cooled 1kW electric space nuclear reactor and its radiator array. The modelling was done using SolidWorks’ Flow Simulation add-in and an independent flow analysis software called STELLA.
