Major: Chemical Engineering

Year: 2020

Hometown: Westford 


Semesters at TURI Lab: 0


My major focuses on the chemical aspect of engineering with respect to materials and understanding how they respond to different chemical exposures. I have yet to decide whether I will study a specific aspect of chemical engineering or not. 

What are your plans for after graduation? 

After graduation, I plan on getting my masters in Chemical Engineering. I eventually hope to end up working towards making the planet greener, whether that be in the field of alternative energy or doing something similar to what we do in the TURI lab.

Favorite Part of Working at TURI: The people are great
Past Jobs: I have worked in a lab before, designing, building, and testing plasma reactors. Before that I have worked typical high school jobs (CVS, Kimball Farm, lawn mowing)
