I am an artist by nature. My true passion lies in the process of creation and is driven by a need to solve problems. This lifestyle led me to pursue a degree in engineering. It is my goal to become a design engineer through the creation of products which enrich peoples lives.
My mechanical inclination started at a young age and I often took things apart to learn how they worked. As years progressed, I took an interest in drawing and computer design. It seemed only natural to meld both interests through the field of engineering. I received my BS in Biomedical Engineering in 2016 from the University of Rhode Island. My gained knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology has inspired me to one day design devices which assist muscular dystrophy patients. The biomedical path has also opened doors to the interdisciplinary learning of embedded systems, manufacturing processes and classical mechanics.
Currently, I am a research engineer for Veteran’s Affairs in Providence, Rhode Island. I am actively engaged in motion capture and VR for gait rehabilitation in lower limb amputees.
