I’m a Senior at Harvard majoring in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Government (International Relations) and an interest in sustainable energy. Outside of class I’m an athlete on the varsity rowing team, casual flautist, and a course assistant for math classes. If I’m not in the lab I’m enjoying beautiful weather by hiking, biking and exploring Cambridge. I have a passion for travelling, and try to spend at least part of each summer exploring other countries and cultures. After college I hope to pursue research at a doctoral level, while continuing to engage in collaboration with people at other labs and in other countries to work on creating environmentally sustainable products which are commercially viable throughout the world.
