About Me[edit]

Glad to see you here![edit]

Image15.jpg

I am a graduate student in the Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics department at Michigan Technological University, Michigan, United States of America. You can find me as a very active person who has aesthete craving to explore new things, culture, people, and of course science. I'm enthusiastic and highly motivated with proven leadership capabilities, who likes to take initiative and seek out new challenges. Proficient in a range of modern technologies including Minitab, Microsoft Excel, FEA, SolidWorks, Latex, and Lean Six-Sigma. I am also a part of Leaders in Continuous Improvement for Michigan Tech where we present various Lean Manufacturing related tools to our student members through presentations, learning activities, and virtual industrial trips. You can read more about me here.
