Materials Science Engineering

What is the RISE area of interest during your first year and why?: 

My first year interest is Service. I was an Ambassador Coordinator before joining RISE so it is a great opportunity to get recognition from the work I do. I love talking to perspective students and making sure The Clark School gets represented in the best way possible. Selecting the most talented Ambassadors and training them to represent Maryland is an incredible experience.

What is the RISE area of interest during your second year and why?: 

My second year interest is Research. I have done research in the past and I really enjoy it. Additionally, it helps me decide whether research is the path that I want to take after graduation and maybe pursue a higher degree. The other thing that sparks my interest about research is the research topic that I will work on.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

SEED Mentor

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

I got to attend a conference and present my work. I thought it was an incredible experience. Additionally, I met very interesting people with very different backgrounds as to how they got there. The conference showed me what the life of an engineer is if grad school or being a professor is the path that I am interested in taking.
