PES Scholar - 2013, 2014, 2015

I am studying Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University. I will be graduating in Spring 2016. I am particularly interested in energy storage.

Why did you choose to study engineering and the power engineering field?

I wanted a career where there was room to make a large impact on society. The power and energy fields is one of these fields. When I started studying engineering, my biggest goal was to someday help with that impact. The amazing thing is that through my power and energy internships, I already have. Working at Ambri. Inc, a clean energy startup working to create a liquid metal battery for the grid, I was able to contribute meaningfully.

What do you love about the power engineering field? What excites you about being involved in the PE field?

I am most excited about the opportunity for change. We can, and are, moving towards smarter and cleaner infrastructure, and I get to be a part of that!

How has being selected as a PES Scholar impacted you?

It has given me the confidence and resources to explore the power and energy field. Through this scholarship, I have received recognition from many of my professors. The personal relationships I have formed with the professors through this scholarship have greatly improved my college experience.
