I am a 2nd year material science and engineering student at Michigan Technological University. I am a member of the advanced metalworks enterprise and a recent admit of the Pavlis Honors College. The opportunity to innovate and to change the world for the better is what drew me to the field of engineering. Participating in research would allow me to take steps towards achieving my aspirations and help me determine what I would like to pursue in the future.
