I received my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University and am currently pursuing my Master’s degree. I've previously served as the Controls Team Leader on the Penn State Advanced Vehicle Team and continue to volunteer as a graduate student advisor. Currently, I am a Power and Controls Systems Graduate Research Assistant at the Penn State Applied Research Laboratory. I am researching feature-based enhancements to the inertial navigational framework for autonomous vehicles. My research focuses on estimating vehicle and "object-of-interest" state by tracking features in point-clouds.
