Green, Elise

Major: 
Mechanical Engineering

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

My RISE area of interest for my first year is Research. I intend on going to graduate school in an area related to robotics so want to get experience doing research in that field to make sure I truly enjoy it.

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

My RISE area of interest in my second year is going to be instruction. Last year I discovered my enjoyment for teaching others through being a tutor in UMD's Academic Success and Tutorial Services. This year I am a TA for the computer science department and I hope to continue being either a TA or a TF next year as well.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 
  • Alpha Omega Epsilon
  • Association for Women in Computing
  • Research Assistant in Micro Robotics Lab
  • Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for CMSC131
What is your cool engineering experience?: 

One of my coolest engineering experiences was interning at Google last summer (summer 2016). I got to learn a lot about the cool technologies that Google is developing and contribute myself to the Google Express iOS app. The feature I added to the app was in production so my work will affect everyone's experience who downloads and uses the app.
