I am an enrolled member of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians, and I study electrical engineering at the University of Minnesota Duluth. My research interests include nanotechnology and how it can be implemented into renewable energy technologies. My goal upon graduation is to pursue an advanced degree in electrical engineering. I enjoy mentoring and encouraging Native American youth to pursue education in hopes of ending the cycle of poverty on the reservation.
