In Summer 2019, I interned at Markforged, a leading manufacturer of metal and composite 3D printers, as part of their Materials team.

While at Markforged, I created the DOE for an extensive study looking into filament compatibility with Markforged’s lineup of composite 3D printers. This involved use of testing equipment for dynamic mechanical analysis, tensile testing, and rheology, among others. I also assisted in development of Onyx ESD, an Onyx chopped-fiber filament variant with static-dissipative properties, as well as created and redesigned software and hardware tools used internally within the Materials team to improve efficiency.
