I am a senior at Olin College of Engineering, majoring in mechanical engineering and primarily interested in aerospace and robotics. Thanks to Olin's project-focused curriculum, I have had the opportunity to work on many hands-on engineering projects, several of which are displayed on this website. These projects have given me practice at problem-solving, self-direction, and collaboration, and allowed me to apply the concepts I learned to actual engineering challenges.
Outside of class, I devote my time to Olin's recently formed International Aerial Robotics Competition team, research to design robotic hexapod rovers for space exploration and bird-inspired perching landing gear for drones, and serving as a course assistant for classes like Quantitative Engineering Analysis, Partial Differential Equations, and Transport Phenomena. Over the last two summers I interned at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory on a project to develop ballistically launched multirotors. Aside from engineering, I also enjoy playing the trombone in several of Olin's music groups, reading books, and playing board games.
My skillset centers on mechanical design and analysis, with experience in Computer-Aided Design, fabrication and rapid prototyping, and mathematical modeling using computational tools like MATLAB. I am also an accomplished programmer, with most of my experience in robotics. Finally, through various projects I have learned to effectively collaborate with teammates and integrate mechanical, electrical, and software components to create a functioning system.
