I am a non-graduating senior General Engineering major from Chesterfield, Virginia studying at James Madison University. My hobbies include listening to music, playing basketball, and spending time with my family. My current research interests involve developing mechatronic systems and the progression of solar energy as an alternative energy resource, which relate to my goal to pursue a PhD in Mechanical Engineering focused on either of these two topics. I would like to work as a researcher or to become a professor in my field of study.
