I will be graduating from UMass Amherst in 2023 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. Relevant engineering courses are listed below. In addition to my schoolwork, I also participated in a few clubs, such as NASA Lunabotics and Formula SAE. I am currently conducting research in the DARoS Laboratory where I will be doing my independent study on ankle exoskeletons in the spring of 2022. I also participate in numerous intramural sports such as floor hockey and softball.

Saint John's High School
Saint John's High School in Shrewsbury MA was where I started my second robotics team. The school approved my proposal to start a team and every day for the three years I would work with teachers, administration, and nearby companies for funding and makerspace planning. During my time there we converted unused classrooms into a state-of-the-art makerspace where any Saint John's student can use this area as a part of the engineering class/club, or robotics team/club. Aside from finishing in the top 3 or winning the state championship and finishing 0.5% internationally, I also participated in the investment club and enjoyed attending sports events. Some honors I received are listed below.
Commended by the Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts for community outreach and excellence in STEM
Headmaster's Citation for Exemplary Service, Vision, and Leadership
MIT Beaver Works Institute
"MIT Beaver Works Summer Institute is a rigorous, world-class STEM program for talented students who will be entering their senior year in high school. The four-week program teaches STEM skills through project-based workshop-style courses." I was selected as one of 200 international robotics students and I partook in the ‘Hack a 3D Printer’ course. This additive manufacturing course's goals were to show us how hardware and software can be modified for optimal performance. We had to build, program, debug, and hack a 3D printer.
