I am a senior at the Rutgers University - Honors College where I am studying mechanical engineering, physics and philosophy. Currently, I am a research intern in the receiver lab of the Harvard - Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. My research pertains to instrumentation which will be implemented on the SubMillimeter Array (SMA) in Mauna Kea, Hawaii.
Previously, I have conducted research on instrumentation for dark matter detection at Princeton University and at Texas A&M University through their physics & astronomy REU program.
In addition to these research opportunities, I am a founding member of the Rutgers Rocket Propulsion Laboratory (RRPL) and their electronics team leader. We are a group of students that design, construct and test competition-ready rockets. Most recently, our team competed in the Virgin Galactic - Spaceport America Cup in New Mexico.
