Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a junior studying physics and electrical engineering. I love space, and I am particularly interested in optics. At MIT, I have participated in undergraduate research in the Space, Telecommunication, Astronomy, and Radiation (STAR) Lab in MIT's Aero-Astro department, working on hardware for small satellites. Last summer, I worked in the optics group of a satellite company in LA called Millennium Space Systems, and this summer I'll be working in a quantum photonics lab at MIT Lincoln Labs. This past January, I spent four weeks teaching engineering design workshops to middle school and high school students in Israel through MIT's Global Teaching Labs, and I can't wait for Spark this spring!

E13927: Product Design Workshop: Natural Disaster Relief in Spark 2020 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2020)
Want to learn more about product design and real-world problem solving? In this workshop, you will push your creative limits and think of ideas on the spot through the process of engineering design. Over the course of the workshop, students will develop real ideas for alleviating problems caused by natural disasters, and then will pitch their final ideas to the class at the end for a chance to win a prize!
