About Me

Currently studying materials science and engineering at Michigan Tech. I became interested in the engineering field through the Michigan Tech summer youth programs. I furthered my interest by taking pre-engineering class joining my high school's FIRST robotics team. I joined the wiring team because I had some experience wiring and knew I didn't want to be a mechanical engineer, where I eventually became the wiring team leader. The pre-engineering course gave me my first opportunity to work on a renewable energy project. I am excited to continue my materials science and engineering career and begin researching new advanced materials.
