Work Experience

Ascent Aerosystems

Over Summer 2022, I was an engneering intern designing and testing coaxial UAVs. This involved mechanical design, electrical integration, and flight testing.

Olin College Design Build Fly

I was Project Manager for Olin College's entry in the 2022 AIAA DBF competition. We placed 15th of over 100 teams with a 7ft wingspan composite wing RC aircraft.


I was a mechanical engineer on the SWARM-Ex Cubesat project. This involved collaboration to create a cubesat frame capable of housing and interfacing equipment being designed by many different universities.

About Me

Hi! I'm Tiger Sky Jewell-Alibhai, but everyone calls me Tigey. I am 21 years old and love anything to do with Engineering and Design. I am pursuing a career in Robotics Engineering as an undergraduate at Olin College of Engineering.

I grew up in the Algarve province of Portugal, and only moved to the US just before high school. Because of my parents' work, I have travelled to many different places such as China, India, Namibia, and the UK.

I am an avid drone & FPV enthusiast, and enjoy making and flying planes and quads. Photography, cinematography, and photogrammetry with drones is also really fun, and I have a U.S. Part 107 Commercial Drone License. Whether it's racing wings or a camera drone, UAVs offer unique contributions to photography and a really great inexpensive and risk-free way to fly for fun.

Now at Olin, I have the opportunity to turn my ideas into meaningful projects and collaborate with amazing people on a daily basis. I am the Project Manager of Olin's Design Build Fly aircraft team and I have been involved in other projects such as designing and building a 3D scanner, creating a frisbee tracking system, developing a modular videogame, and using PCA and eigenfaces to identify endangered species of animals by their footprints.
