I’m an innovator. I use my background in design, mechanical engineering, and fine arts to move ideas from concepts to reality. My process starts with need finding and user research, stemming from my foundation in design thinking. I then move to prototyping and from there work simultaneously to improve the aesthetics, ergonomics, functionality, and manufacturability of the design. I have used this process to bring both team-based and personal projects to life.
I’m master’s student at Stanford University pursuing a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering. I recently completed a B.S. in Product Design Engineering with a minor in Spanish. Starting in September 2019, I will be a teaching assistant at Stanford’s Product Realization Lab where my role will include being a course assistant in the classroom, as well as teaching hands-on manufacturing basics in the shop. The role will be a continuation of my teaching experience, following two years of being a program assistant in the Ceramics Arts Intensive at Stanford.
