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.
