LEONARDO DRS, Richardson, TX Spring & Summer 2019
Leonardo DRS, formerly, DRS Technologies, Inc., is a U.S.-based defense contractor that provides American warfighters in all the military branches with critical technology.
Quality Engineering Co-op
•Examined approximately 100 “Brownout” infrared units per day to ensure they could be used for military helicopters.
•Worked on a team of 3 engineers to reform defect specifications for the infrared units
allowing less units to be scrapped.
•Utilized equipment (torque tester, heat-treating furnaces, high-powered digital microscope) to collect data for design specification alteration. Data was shared with the Quality department
and equipment vendors.
Additional Work Experience
COOPERATIVE EXTENSION PROGRAM, Prairie View, TX Spring 2020
The Cooperative Extension Program brings practical research-based knowledge to farmers, families, entrepreneurs, and youth in 35 Texas counties. The program strives to assist those who have limited assets, opportunities, and resources.

GUARANTEED 4.0 LEARNING SYSTEM, LLC, Prairie View, TX Fall 2017
Program developed by Donna O. Johnson-Mackey providing participants with a method to teach how to learn rather than how to study.
•Collaborated with the CEO to determine incentives that would inspire college freshmen and sophomores to actively participate in the program.
•Ensured that the program participants were properly performing the bullet point notetaking. Students’ class notebooks were checked for the bullet point method, and each individual’s engagement was tracked in excel files.
•Attended lab classes with the students to track progress and assist with taking notes properly. As a result, 20% of the participants earned a 4.0 for the semester.
DESIGN OF A CUMENE PLANT, (Fall 2019 – Spring 2020)
The Production of Cumene by Catalytic Distillation
Objective: To design a cost-effective plant that produces 99.9% pure cumene.
Purpose: To demonstrate elements of market analysis, material and energy balance, process equipment design, hazard and operability, and safety.
- Determined plant capacity, location, and possible clients from market analysis.
- Chose a specific process and catalyst to produce the desired cumene purity.
- Created block and process flow diagrams.
- Performed mass and energy balances.
- Simulated the cumene catalytic distillation process using Aspen Plus.
- Sized equipment (distillation columns, pumps, etc.) to complete a plant economic analysis.
- Considered equipment and personal safety to be major responsibilities of the “company”
- Worked on a team of 5 to compile the information and present to an industry panel
Result: Design was found to be economically feasible and the goal of producing 99.9% pure cumene was achieved.
