I’m an undergraduate student at Washington State University (WSU) studying a dual major in Material Science and Mechanical Engineering. I currently do research with the Institute for Materials Research (IMR) on Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CdZnTe) crystals. Outside of research, I work at the Nuclear Science Center (NSC) in Pullman as a reactor trainee, where I learn about reactor theory and systems, as well as preform reactor startups/rundowns. Finally, I am a Voiland College student ambassador, where I mainly connect with students and parents and give tours specifically to the mechanical and material engineering side at WSU. Outside of school I enjoy creating things in Solidworks, watching action/adventure movies and playing intramural games with my friends.
