Who are you?
PES Scholar - 2014 - 2015
- Electrical Engineering with a Minor in Mathematics
- Northeastern University class of 2017
- Academic and professional interest in radar and radio frequency engineering; other areas of interest include aeronautics and aerospace engineering.
Why did you choose to study engineering and the power engineering field?
In high school I loved taking physics and calculus courses and wanted to continue studying similar topics. I also wanted the opportunity to put my creativity to use in design and problem solving scenarios. Engineering is for me the perfect blend of these attributes. Specifically, I chose to pursue power engineering after completing a 6 month long co-op at Communications & Power Industries where I worked on receiver protector units for radar systems.
What do you love about the power engineering field? What excites you about being involved in the PE field?
During my co-op, I had the opportunity to experience first hand what the power engineering field is like. I found the work that I was doing to be extremely interesting and challenging. After completing my co-op I have decided to further this interest by taking courses in which I can learn more about the different types of power engineering.
How has being selected as a PES Scholar impacted you?
Being selected as a PES Scholar has validated my career choice as an electrical engineer. It has bolstered my motivation to be successful both academically and professionally. In addition to this, becoming a PES Scholar has encouraged me to pursue on-campus undergraduate research at Northeastern University as I want to take every opportunity available to me to further my education as an electrical engineer.
