Doctoral Student in Mechanical Engineering
200 Boston Avenue
Medford, MA 02155
I am pursuing a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering after graduating from Tufts
with a B.S. in mechanical engineering and a double minor in engineering education
and engineering management in 2018. My research has been focused on developing
a new Internet of Things technology for elementary school students, as well as
developing other technologies to enable engineering education in classrooms from
kindergarten to college. I am excited to work on lowering barriers to entry for
using existing technology in classrooms, engineering new technologies and methods
for enabling learning by doing, and making engineering education accessible for
all educators and learners. During my undergraduate career at Tufts, I was an
infielder for the Tufts softball team, which won a historic undefeated national
championship in 2015.
BS Mechanical Engineering, Tufts University, 2018
I am a research assistant for Chris Rogers.
My research has been focused on the development of an Internet of Things platform
designed for elementary school students, and understanding how young students use
the internet in their design processes. I am also working on the creation a new,
online maker-education resource, with the goal of enabling more classrooms worldwide
to engage in learning through making.
