I received my BS in mechanical engineering from North Carolina State University in 2011. As an undergraduate I spent over two years interning at Advanced Liquid Logic in Morrisville, NC, developing electrowetting technology for biochem applications. I am currently pursuing an MS in engineering mechanics, studying the dynamics involved in the displacement of non-Newtonian liquids by a gas and the instabilities therein. Outside of school I enjoy disc golf, snowboarding, and the occasional book.
