Background Information: 

I completed my BSME at RPI, concentrating in Energy Systems and held two internships with UTC Power of South Windsor, CT where I worked on stationary and vehicular fuel cell technology and limited geothermal power generation. It was this early career experience that birthed my passion for renewable energy and sustainability. After graduating in 2009, I moved to Maryland where I worked in forensic engineering as a test engineer with CED Investigative Technologies. In 2011 I took a position at Saft America in Cockeysville, MD as a R&D Mechanical Engineer and Cell Designer working in high-capacity/power lithium ion cells manufacturing. Lastly in 2013 I joined Stanley Black and Decker as a Senior Engineer as part of the DeWalt battery pack team and it is where I am today. My long-term aspiration is to return to the renewable energy and sustainability industry where I can apply my true passion to making an advancement towards a cleaner World. Born and raised in New England, I am an avid skier and harbor a love of lobsta and chowda.

Why Maryland: 
I began my involvement with UMCP through the Maryland Sustainability Engineering student involvement. Serving as a professional mentor to students working on a sustainability project yielded the opportunity to visit Sierra Leone in partnership with the Madieu Williams Foundation. Deciding it was the right time to go for my Masters Degree, I naturally gravitated to UMCP for the practicality of the ENPM program. Within the PMME track I concentrated in Energy and the Environment in order to support my career passion.
