Projects & Experience

Driven by exciting and meaningful ways of intertwining my passions, I strive to find experiences that combine education, computer science, physics, and leadership to make an impact.


Robot Programming Interface for K-12 Students


Physics + CS + Education = Robotics Education

Our goal was to make advanced robotics accessible to K-12 students. After designing computer vision, kinematics, and AI components so our robot could see, move, and interact with objects on a table, I worked with a team to create an engaging drag-and-drop robot programming application. The result was a robotics summer program where students teamed up to create programs and complete challenges.

Teaching


Leadership + Education = Teaching

I love working with students and sincerely believe that "the best way to learn is to teach" – Frank Oppenheimer. Because I'm so passionate about education, I've spent much of my time teaching and working with students from middle school through college.
