Bio

I am a 5th year undergraduate student at Michigan Tech double majoring in Computer and Electrical Engineering with a Minor in Aerospace Studies. My academic interests are widely varied, but they center around my fields of study; I am particularly interested in MEMS, Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing), embedded systems, computer organization/architecture, and wireless communications, however, I have a fascination with nearly all new technologies and I welcome the opportunity to learn and expand my knowledge.

I have been a member of the Aerospace Enterprise at Michigan Tech and am currently serving as Project Manager on a Ford sponsored design team as part of the Wireless Communications Enterprise. I am also the President of the Michigan Tech's chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the Engineering Honor Society [1].

Research

Summer 2014

While working as a SOCHE contractor for the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterons AFB, I performed wireless security research with a heavy emphasis on Bluetooth devices. Utilizing flaws within the Bluetooth protocol, I devised a method for intelligent stealth jamming of individual Bluetooth connections and wrote a research paper detailing how to exploit this weakness.

Summer 2013

As part of a NSF REU at Michigan Tech, I performed interdisciplinary research related to semi-truck fuel efficiency by designing and building electronic controls for full scale semi-truck transmission simulator. At the conclusion of the project, I presented research project to Michigan Tech faculty and participated in undergraduate poster presentation [2]. In addition, during the summer as part of the research program I designed an Arduino based controller and sensors for 5th wheel used to log coast down and drive cycle data with data acquisition package (PLX-DAQ) and taught a Simulink based closed loop controls seminar to undergraduate students.
