I am currently a PhD Candidate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). For my PhD I am designing and modeling a new type of buoyancy engine for underwater applications.


For my Masters I studied reversible underwater attachment mechanisms and systems. I developed a biomimetic suction-based crawling robot for attaching to ship hulls for cleaning and inspection. I also performed experiments to determine scaling relationships between suction-based grippers and hard surfaces, in the presence of different newtonian fluids.

In between my undergraduate and graduate studies I worked for 5 years. I spent 3.5 of those years as an engineer and educator at the MIT Edgerton Center and about 1.5 as a mechanical engineer at an early stage autonomous vehicle start up company called Optimus Ride.

I did my undergraduate studies at MIT in Mechanical Engineering, and attended the John D. O'Bryant High School in Boston, MA
