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

I always enjoyed a challenge and felt engaged in science and math disciplines throughout school. I did a project on Wind Turbines in high school and was drawn to renewable energy all my life. In college, I tried to focus on sustainability and power engineering with a renewable energy emphasis.

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

I am very passionate about renewable energy and energy efficiency. I am excited about applications of communications protocols to power engineering to reinvent the grid. Any type of smart grid application makes me excited.

How has been selected as a PES Scholar impacted you?

Being selected as a PES Scholar has motivated me to pursue my passions in this field. I am hoping to get a communications background and carry that focus into the power engineering applications. I want to make an impact in this industry and being a PES Scholar has given me the confidence to pursue that goal.
