Biography

I am pursuing a PhD in mechanical engineering after graduating from Tufts with a M.S. in mechanical engineering. During my master's career, I found myself really interested in robotics, especially on how robots could be combined with AI to change the way of engineering education and our lives. Currently, my research is focusing on building up a robotic platform for children to learn fundamental concepts of AI technologies like machine learning and visual recognition. I'm excited to explore the potential of teaching children engineering and frontier fields through a robotic approach, and I'm also trying to make robots more accessible to both learners and educators.

CEEO Responsibilities:
I'm a research assistant for Professor Chris Rogers.
