Hello, my name is Jevon Ashman, a rising senior majoring in Physics with a concentration in computational physics at Morehouse College. Where I served as the Vice President of the robotics team and as the Safety Officer for the NASA Student Launch team. Using my skills and education I plan to earn a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering focusing on alternative propulsion systems. My research interests lie at the intersection of engineering and computer science; specifically where I hope to find integrative approaches to optimize physical systems using machine learning. When I’m not in an engineering lab, I am engaging in community service where I mentor young students on leadership, tutor math & science, and increase interest in the STEM field to underrepresented communities. My hobbies include sewing, video games, rollerskating, and making music playlists.
