My Education

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Cambridge, MA Candidate for Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering

September 2013–June 2017

Relevant Coursework: Circuits and Electronics, Dynamics and Controls I & II, Design and Manufacturing I & II, Measurement and Instrumentation, Engineering Systems Design, Venture Engineering

Design Project:

  • Completed senior project in engineering design and development, a yearlong course modifying a BMW i3 to charge using hydrogen produced from an aluminum reaction.
  • Led sub-team concerned with fuel cell and power electronics, responsible for taking hydrogen produced by reaction sub-team and turning it into electricity able to charge the vehicle.
  • Created mounting system to integrate our hardware into the vehicle and allow for ease of wiring and tubing
  • Developed specifications for fuel cell input hydrogen and output power to the project vehicle.
