I was born in Livonia, Mi and I am a rising senior majoring in Electrical Engineering at Western Michigan University. My research interests include the applications of controls to biological systems. At MIT I am studying in the 3D Optical Systems Group under Dr. George Barbastathis. I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and stay in academia, researching and teaching. In my free time, I play the trumpet in the Bronco Marching Band and Pep Band at WMU and I love to watch and play baseball/softball.
