I am a second year University Scholar at Northeastern University with a dual major in electrical and computer engineering. I am a part of the Northeastern Wireless Club, which has an awesome workspace and support for electronics projects. I am also public relations representative for Northeastern's Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, a campus tour guide, and a member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Civic Engagement Program, and NUHacks.
After accepting a Department of Homeland Security REU working with Dr. Carey Rappaport, I have continued working in his lab part time. I am working to construct and implement a hallway based millimeter wave imaging system to aid in awareness and localization of explosives related threats in airport security. My responsibilities encompass electrical and mechanical engineering, ranging from designing structural components in SolidWorks to writing simulation software in MATLAB to troubleshooting millimeter wave PCBs.
I attended my first hackathon as a high school senior in 2014 and was hooked from then on. In the last 2 years, I have attended ten hackathons, winning seven awards, including a gold medal at BU and bronze medals at Columbia and NYU. I am looking forward to working with my advisors to organize a hackathon at Northeastern University in the upcoming school year. My hackathon projects can be found in my Devpost portfolio.
