Biography

   


A Little More About Me...

I received my Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in June 2009. While at MIT, I did two summer internships at Anheuser-Busch, Inc. and two summer internships at General Motors Corporation. In addition to summer internships, I spent 3.5 years as an undergraduate research assistant at the MIT AgeLab. Doing research at the AgeLab initially got me interested in Human Factors and driver distraction.

As such, I decided to attend graduate school to pursue my research interest further at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) within the Cognitive Systems Laboratory. In May 2011, I received my Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from the UW-Madison. While at UW-Madison, I have held summer fellowships at the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety (through an American Society for Safety Engineers Foundation Safety Research Fellowship) and at Hewlett-Packard Labs (through the National Science Foundation's Engineering Innovation Fellowship Program).

In August 2014, I received my Doctor of Philosophy in Industrial Engineering from the UW-Madison and joined the Technical Staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
