I'm a mechanical engineer currently working at Hansen Medical in Mountain View, California. I am a recent graduate of the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, a small school just outside of Boston.
In my free time, I keep busy skiing, hiking, camping, and working on projects like robots, human powered vehicles, animatronic penguins and automatic t-shirt cannons. I enjoy bicycles and once worked with a friend to build a carbon fiber bike frame with custom CNC machined and welded steel lugs.
I've been involved with the FIRST Robotics Competition since 2008 as a student and now engineering mentor on Team 254, The Cheesy Poofs from San Jose, CA. In college, I led Olin College's award-winning Human Powered Vehicle Team.
Designed 1000+ watt capacity two-speed piston-actuated shifting gearbox with power take-off for FIRST robot.
Implemented Galerkin's finite element method in MATLAB.
Lead designer for award-winning competition robot which kicks soccer balls 50+ ft and does a "chin up" in <2 sec.
Designed & built a moving clock sculpture with three gear-connected hands.
Helped to design, build & test lunar micro-rover prototype during NASA internship.
Built working Helmholtz Coil & Capacitor and created AM radio with both for Physics E&M class.
Developed comprehensive brand imagery and identity standards to unify and strengthen the brand of Robotics Team 254.
