Forensic Engineer

Mr. Siddiqui joined Momentum Engineering Corp. in 2016. Since joining MEC, he has received intensive training on state-of-the-art technologies pertaining to accident reconstruction. With nearly three years of forensic engineering experience under his belt, Mr. Siddiqui is well trained in Simulation, Photogrammetry, Vehicle Black Box download, etc. He has availed the opportunity to hone his skills in photography and 3D laser scanning technology and has conducted numerous vehicle and site inspections. In addition to using calculation spreadsheets, he is responsible for utilizing simulation software such as PC-Crash and HVE, which help to determine the dynamic behavior of vehicles during a crash.

Mr. Siddiqui has always been fascinated with vehicles. His career began in 2011 when he completed his first internship at Honda. There he gained hands-on experience by overhauling, repairing and replacing engine parts. His fascination with electric vehicles (EV) led him to doing his thesis on regenerative braking system in EVs. Mr. Siddiqui continues to take advanced engineering training classes with Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) while attending conferences about crash testing and accident reconstruction.

Mr. Siddiqui graduated with a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from California State University, Los Angeles in 2016. He was introduced to Forensic Engineering in grad school as a special topic class. Furthermore, he is currently working on research projects to study the effect of autonomy and electric vehicles on traditional accident reconstruction methods.
