Major: Materials Science and Engineering
Hometown: Baltimore, MD
High School: Baltimore Polytechnic Institute

What Made You Decide to Attend UMD?
There were three things that made me really want to attend the UMD. The research opportunities, the availability of my current major, and how close it is to home!

Best Experience with a Class or Project
My best experience with a class was in ENES100. It was the first class I took at UMD that opened me up to what engineering would look like. I got to work in a team where we made the decisions on what our project develop into and we had to meet strict deadlines. I feel like it really prepared me for future team exercises.

Favorite Class In Major
CHEM 481: Physical Chemistry I

Favorite Class Out of Major
CLAS 170: Greek and Roman Mythology

Student Organizations/Extracurricular Activities

Favorite On-Campus Event
Maryland Day! I get to see all the clubs and activities the school has to offer.

Favorite Research or Study Abroad Experiences
My favorite research experience was when I worked with liquid crystals and Active Nematic systems.

Cool Engineering Experience
The coolest engineering experience I've had so far was designing an OSV in ENES 100. Designing and printing parts in the 3D printer was an awesome experience.
