I've got a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines, and am currently in graduate school for Space Systems Engineering. I have coursework and experience in MATLAB, Fluids, Thermo I and II, Heat Transfer, Statics, Mechanics of Materials, Structural Theory, Organic Chemistry 1, both General Chemistry classes, Calculus I, II, and III, and both Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations etc. etc. I have also served as an SAT/ACT Math tutor before.

I took both ordinary and partial differential equations courses at University, and am particularly well versed in their application to multi-axial heat transfer analysis. A good example of this application utilized a customized iterative numerical solver to approximate the solution of a Bessel function describing the annular flow of heat through a radially symmetric, if atypical, geometry.
I took no less than 30 semester credits of classes which made substantial use of Matlab, at least half of which were dominated by modelling, data structures, and general literacy in Matlab. One particular highlight was a Thermo II project that involved writing a script to model and evaluate the theoretical performance of a MSR Uranium 232 thermonuclear reactor from atomic cross sectional analyses of fissile decay rates to the mass flow of molten calcium fluoride coolant. I also spent three months developing an extensive aircraft performance database complete with a interpolative range/payload calculator for work. In addition, I have some experience with Simulink. I last used it to model the feedback network of a multi-axial reaction-wheel based attitude control system for a 3U cubesat I worked on for senior design.
