I am a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) pursuing a Master’s Degree in Computer Science. Although the focus of my Bachelor’s degree was mechanical engineering, my interest in the CS field is what led me to apply to this prestigious Master’s program at UPenn and since then, I have gained a greater passion and stronger grasp of the field. Strengthening my skills in software engineering has given me a deeper appreciation of the digital services we interact with every day, with my ultimate goal being to apply my theoretical knowledge of CS to better people’s lives by creating more efficient technologies. I am looking to gain industry experience in the Computer Science field and am seeking opportunities to grow my network as well as my engineering knowledge.

Member Services Counselor
Responsible for sending out emergency roadside assistance in coordination with outside contractors and police departments to members in need. Had to input member information, pay attention to detail, being able to detect fraud, and handling customers under stressful conditions.
With a talented team of driven individuals, we have developed a potentially lifesaving mechanical accessory for patients undergoing CPR, delivering increased accuracy, reduced risk, and less strain on first responders. The initial prototype has been designed utilizing Autodesk Inventor and it is currently undergoing continuous improvements. We plan to file a utility patent and have a fully functioning prototype by Summer 2022.
Creo Innovation Showcase- Tripod
Reverse-engineered a Bosch Camera Tripod, identifying all the mechanical component and modelling each individual component using Creo Parametric 5.0. Assembled the Bosch Camera Tripod on Creo Parametric and fabricated part drawings, assembly drawings, and patents into a report. Presented the final product to a team of judges and successfully placed.
N.A.S.A. HUNCH - Can Compressor Mechanism
Designed and created a can compressor mechanism to be utilized on the International Space System. The mechanism had to compress used food cans to maximize storage efficiency on the International Space System. Additionally, the can compressor was designed to contain any metal shards that may result as a biproduct of the compression. Our final design will be taken into consideration by N.A.S.A.
