Monica Doré currently holds an engineering position at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) at Wallops Flight Facility as an Aerospace engineer. Ms. Dore has received an Undergraduate Degree with Honors in Engineering with a Mechanical Specialization from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) in December 2014. Prior to receiving her undergraduate degree she worked as an intern with NASA from 2012-2014. She works supporting Airborne Science missions aboard flight platforms such as the P-3 and C-130. She develops mechanical structures for integrating Earth science instruments into NASA aircrafts. The work involves developing, fabricating, and testing flight vehicle structures or their components and recommending optimum configurations, structural design, materials, and techniques. Her work is multi-faceted as she is responsible for completing a design from the concept stages and gathering requirements, to fabrication and assembly. This often entails being the design engineer, the structural analyst, and the fabrication drafter.
Rodrigo Ramos’ Biography for 2017 ASEE Conference
Rodrigo Ramos, born in Santiago, Chile, is currently the Quality Control Manager at Sonic Tools LP, a business developing and supplying high quality, specialty tooling across a variety of manufacturing industries. He is also in a work committee dedicated to studying the ERP system in place, and correcting processes when necessary. Rodrigo received his Undergraduate Degree in Engineering with a specialization in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Prior to receiving his Undergraduate Degree, Rodrigo programmed and designed the Quality Control database during an internship at Sonic Tools LP. As an intern with MaTech Solutions, Rodrigo built 3D models of shop machines to be used for simulating programs and preventing machine crashes.

Monai Stinnett graduated in December 2014 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in General Engineering Specializing in Mechanical Engineering from University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Monai is currently enrolled at University of Maryland College Park Master Program pursuing in Mechanical Engineering, Energy and Environment. She wants to further her knowledge in Energy Engineering to focus on methods to effectively increase efficiency and to use energy in cleaner ways. For her Senior Design Project, Ms. Stinnett Designed a Dome Test Setup for Sheet Metal Formability Characterization. During the summer of 2014, Ms. Stinnett had a Maryland Space Grant Consortium Summer Exchange Student Internship. She developed lab experiments that aid the learning of multiple manufacturing concepts through hands-on completion of the lab exercise. Integrating learning-based assessment tools into the designs of the experiments.
