My Work

I have over seven years of experience implementing embedded systems projects utilizing various platforms including AVR microcontrollers, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and Teensy. I have six years of experience designing custom circuit boards using Autodesk EAGLE.

At Georgia Tech, I worked in the Space Systems Design Laboratory under Dr. Glenn Lightsey, leading the development of the Lunar Flashlight propulsion system controller.

Also at Georgia Tech, I was a part of HyTech Racing, Georgia Tech’s Formula Student Electric multidisciplinary engineering team. As part of the Electrical Systems subteam, I designed and implemented high voltage drivetrain control systems as well as a battery management system and a wireless telemetry architecture. As team president during the 2018 and 2019 school years, I led the team's project management efforts and worked to streamline the team's supply chain through the creation of new ordering and receiving processes. We placed first at Formula Hybrid for two years in a row, meeting our goal in 2019 of finishing the 44 km Endurance course with a 368 lb vehicle made possible through the team's substantial engineering efforts.
