I am a Mechanical Engineering student with a Mathematics minor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am also an international student from Porto Alegre, Brazil. As an undergraduate student, I have been involved with multiple classes as teaching assistant, engineering tutoring, and research. My research focuses on determining how fighter jet dynamics changes when there are multiple nonlinear attachments coupled to the wings, and why such difference in behavior occurs. My career goals are to pursue a PhD in Aerospace Engineering, and to work with research and development or test engineering in the aerospace industry. In my free time I like to travel, play the piano, listen to music, and read about different scientific concepts.
