Industry

Between 2012 and 2015, I worked as a mechanical engineer at Barrett Technology, in Newton, MA. Barrett is a fantastic company to work for, and builds awesome cable-driven robotic systems.

I can’t share most of my work publicly: please contact me if you would like to see my portfolio, or would like more information about my work with Barrett. However, some of the already-released projects I’ve worked on include:

Proficio Rehabilitation Robot: The Proficio rehabilitation robot is Barrett Technology’s latest robotic device, designed to be a low-cost, high-performance solution for neuromuscular rehabilitative therapy and other human-interfacing applications. I have been integral to the development of the Proficio since my arrival at Barrett, working on everything from system- and component-level design, to drivetrain life testing, to assembly and fabrication, to advertising.

BarrettHand BH8-282: I helped bring the latest generation of the BarrettHand Manipulator, the BH8-282, to market in mid-2013. My responsibilities included supporting redesigns to electrical and mechanical components, creating new manufacturing documentation and workflows, and designing new packaging and advertising materials for the 282 Hand.

Perception Palm Sensor Package: I have subsequently served as lead mechanical designer for the Perception Palm vision system, which equips the BarrettHand with RGB cameras, laser projection, IR rangefinding and illumination, through a low cost add-on module that attaches directly to the palm of the BarrettHand.

X-WAM Mobile Platform: Barrett also sells and integrates WAM systems with Robotnik mobile platforms, including the new X-WAM system, which includes a scissors jack in the mobile base to maximize system dexterity. I created advertising materials for the X-WAM, and continue to provide engineering support for customer modifications.
