Jiaxin Hu began working with CIVS through his Senior Design Project “Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) of condenser loop at NiSource Bailey Station” which helped NiSource predict the potential issues which caused an unfilled condenser. He then continued as a graduate research assistant at CIVS and worked on applied research projects including “CFD Study of Unit 18 FGD Inlet Duct” which was awarded 1st place in the 2012 Purdue Calumet Student Research Day. He graduated from Purdue University Calumet with Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 2013 along with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Sichuan University in 2010. Jiaxin worked at Fontana Fasteners (formerly LEP Special Fasteners), part of Fontana Gruppo, one of the most important manufacturers in the fastener industry world-wide as a tooling engineer in 2013. There he has designed the tooling concepts to produce special fasteners used for assembly in Chrysler engine system. He began working for Tesla in 2014 as a manufacturing engineer supporting die cast tooling for the Model S.
