I’m a Senior at Worcester Polytechnic Institute pursuing a double major in Robotics Engineering and Computer Science graduating in May of 2020.
I am actively looking for a full time position in Robotics Engineering and Software Engineering.
I enjoy working on difficult, interdisciplinary problems at the intersection of hardware and software. I always look forward to leveraging my diverse set of skills on whatever project I may be working on. If you have an opportunity please contact me.
In the summer of 2019 I worked as a Software Engineering Intern at Amazon Robotics in their Westborough, Massachusetts research facility. I worked on the Machine Learning team to develop computer vision algorithms for background subtraction.
In this project I developed and interacted with computer vision models hosted on AWS SageMaker. In addition to the technical development, I conducted analysis to determine potential performance benefits of implementing the project in the production environment.
The project demonstrated successful results causing the production team to pick up this project for further exploration.
In the summer of 2018 I worked as a Systems Engineer at the Moog Space and Defense Group in East Aurora, NY. At Moog, I worked on a project for a space launch vehicle actuation system.
This project was in the development testing phase. My responsibilites included, designing testing procedures to validate system performance and verify customer specification; and developing automated data processing and organization scripts in MATLAB to analyse data from the test console.
For this project I also participated in the projects weekly systems engineering status meetings with Moog project leaders and the customer reviewing challenges and milestones for the project.
In addition to my responsibilites for the space launch vehicle actuation system project, I also worked with the Moog Advance Research team to integrate new navigation and obstacle avoidance sensors using the ROS framework for their robotics testing platform.
My senior year in high school I was accepted into the New Visions program and had he opportunity todo reseach in the Cornell Organic Robotics Lab
In the lab I worked alongside PhD students on the design, production, and testing of soft robotics systems. I modeled parts and molds using SolidWorks and printed them on a custom stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer. I also then programmed robot controls using an Arduino interface.
This was a great experience, that also afforded me the opportunity to be the co-author of a paper presented at the 2016 International Symposium on Experimental Robotics
My passion for designing, building, and programming found an outlet in robotics when I helped found FIRST Robotics Competition Team 5254 in my sophmore year at high school.
I served as the team's President, lead CAD, lead programmer, and driver working on almost all aspects of the team - on everything from design, to fabrication, to programming, to branding, to fundraising, and outreach.
I now mentor my team and am active in the FRC community. During the past few summers I have lead off-season technical training programs that cover the engineering design process through initial concepts, basic sketches, technical specifications, and finally a full CAD model with design and analysis documentation.
