About Myself

I am a Mechanical Engineering student at Rochester Institute of Technolgy with experience in optimal and non-linear controls, machine learning, natural language processing, and computer vision. I strive to learn from my past experiences, and am comfortable being uncomfortable in challenging personal and professional growth situations. I am working towards my bachelors and masters degree in Mechanical Engineering but have performed research in various fields of machine learning.



RIT Mechanical Engineering

I am in the process of completing a five year dual degree (B.S. and M.S.), in Mechanical Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology. The area of focus for my Master's degree was Controls Systems primarily non-linear and optimal controls, and their applications to flight systems.


Discrete Microfluidics Lab

Our team studied the properties of micro-scale gel beads substrates for use in vibrational energy harvesters. I utilized Matlab to analyze a the bead's geometric properties and developed a method for predicting the curvature of the beads. Our team presented our findings at RIT's Undergraduate Research Symposium, and published an article in the ASME Journal of Fluid Engineering.

May 2016 - May 2018

GE Aviation

I created and presented a web-based python tool which tracked the status of engines scheduled for removal in an active field program to senior management. I also compiled information for and wrote a CFM56 5B/E configuration service bulletin.

June - Dec 2017


Our team developed a commercial tool which translates American Sign Language to English, helping to promote and empower Deaf and Hard of Hearing Indivduals. We presented at several RIT business model competions earning $4,500 in investment.

Jan 2017 - Current

Computing Research Association

Our group proposed a one shot method for uncertainty quantification in regressions of high dimensional images which utilizes infinite mixture density models.

October 2018 - Current
