Biography[edit]

I am a chemical engineering undergraduate student at Michigan Technological University and hope to work with new polymers. While attending Kaukauna High School (WI), I carried a challenging work load that showed a love for math and science. At the same time, I became very involved with my school's engineering department. There, I worked with multiple 3D printers and a desktop CNC as well other projects.
