01 education

2017 - 2019

Stanford University

M.S. in Aeronautics and Astronautics

My Silicon Valley adventure was a whirlwind, but I learned so much on the way. It made me a better engineer, a better designer, and a better person. From start-ups to shake-downs, I now feel prepared to face the world and what it has to offer.

2013 - 2017

The Pennsylvania State University

B.S. in Aerospace Engineering
Rank: 1st | Results: Valedictorian

​​At Penn State, I led teams testing spacecraft, aircraft with 2ft, 12ft, and 70ft wingspans, quadcopters, and submarines. I taught 262 students over the span of three years, crossing aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, and women's studies domains. I gave a TED Talk and I won a Hackathon. In all, I really tried to make the most out of four short years. 

2009 - 2013

York Suburban

Senior High School

High School Diploma
Rank: 1st | Results: Valedictorian

​​In High School, I swam and played soccer, joined the robotics team, was the president of the National French Honor Society, and competed in both Quiz Bowl and Science Olympiad.

2015 - 2017

My JOB

I was a researcher in the Autonomy, Perception and Cognition Department, tasked with a team of full-time R&D Engineers to develop multi-agent, non-scripted autonomous control systems for unmanned ground, air, and underwater vehicles. 

my work

Without diving into the details, I developed several vehicle simulators and data visualizers for an array of vehicles, allowing data to be viewed in everything from web-based dynamic geospatial visualization to 3D game engine rendering to interactive virtual reality hubs. I was also the in-house math guru and product designer, where I often developed various algorithms to solve mission constraints and used CAD and 3D printing to rapid-prototype a solution.

2015 - 2017

My JOB

I was the Student Team Lead of the former Google Lunar X-Prize Competitor, Lunar Lion, tasked with leading the development of a full-scale, low-cost, monopropellant lunar lander through all phases of TLR. 

my work

I corralled 30 other crazy students to build the vehicle in these photos and worked tirelessly until we achieved our first 1-DOF vertical flight/landing test. I then designed and led the GNC team responsible for the closed-loop 6-DOF control of the next iteration of the vehicle.

2014 - 2016

My JOB

I was the lead of both the Stability and Controls and Flight Test teams, tasked with preparing our composite human-powered aircraft for competition in the Kremer Prize for Sporting Aircraft. 

my work

I developed several flight simulators and flight test equipment, such as an IMU, from scratch in order to prove test reliability.
