Welcome to my personal website. This portfolio showcases projects where I got my hands dirty or designed something I am proud of.

I graduated from Duke University in May 2017 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. I am a first-generation college student and am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Optics at the University of Arizona.
