Undergraduate Research Assistant

EME 1212


I am a third-year mechanical engineering student at UBC Okanagan. I have previously worked as a data analyst for rail systems in California and New York, assessing and quantifying the surface condition of rails. With my time at CRN, I would like to develop my technical and hands-on skills, while learning more about material design and machine learning processes. In addition to my academics, I enjoy music, cooking, and sports such as volleyball, soccer, and skiing.
