Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi everyone- I'm Laura, a sophomore at MIT right now studying Mechanical Engineering. Some things I'm interested in within MechE are robotics, ocean engineering, and energy sciences. Some things I'm involved in here at MIT are the MIT Concert Choir, Marine Robotics Team, McCormick Hall House Gov, MIT Outing Club, and Society of Women Engineers. I also have a research position in a MechE lab, working on wearable robotics. In my free time I like hiking, skiing, kayaking, cycling, swimming, and spending time outdoors! I also love music, and I sing and play piano. I'm very excited to be teaching for Splash this year!
