I am a fourth year student at Michigan Technological University currently studying Material Science and Engineering. My technical interests include Biomaterials, Semiconductors, Metallurgy and Biomedical Engineering.

Learning - School - Courses[edit]


I am currently enrolled in the following courses:

  • MY3200 - Materials Characterization
  • MY3100 - Materials Processing (Thermodynamics)
  • MY3701 - Intro to Semiconductors
  • PH2020 - Introduction to MATLAB
  • Enterprise - Advanced Metalworks Enterprise


Throughout my term at MTU I have worked on projects in teams through my basic level engineering classes. Those projects have included Solar Updraft Tower project and Aquaculture Facility design. Other projects include those of which I have done in the Advanced Metalworks Enterprise. Advanced Metal Works Enterprise AME I recently worked with ArcelorMittal helping them design and test a blast furnace tapping bit drill so that they could optimize their production.

Applying - Work - Experience[edit]

This past summer I worked for a foundry down in Cadillac, MI. I worked in all of their departments as to get acquainted with their production process. At the end of the summer I worked on projects with their Senior Metallurgist.
