I worked as a research assistant with Carnegie Mellon's Mechanical Engineering Department for the Visual Design and Engineering Lab. I assisted with demonstrating a sketch-based 3D geometric tool's application in product design. I served as an artistic input on a project developing a business that would provide on-the-spot 3D printing of a product. I suggested improvement to user interactions within the program through user testing. I also created models, demos and presentations as a part of my position. In addition, I conducted user surveys to further improve the usability of the program.
