About Me

Yash Ganatra

Welcome to my website! I am a persevering and multifaceted mechanical engineer who enjoys turning designs into products through efficient collaboration. With experience in CAD, heat transfer, CFD, programing and hardware testing/troubleshooting, I can take on a variety of challenging roles. I like to keep learning and playing with the greatest and latest. I love ⚽ 🏓 📖 and learning languages (currently 🇨🇳 HSK Level 2). Also, I helped build a 🚗!
