Global Challenge: Sustainable Vehicle Design

Tandon Global Leaders will provide me with the necessary combination of engineering, innovation, and  entrepreneurial knowledge to allow me to successfully develop into a sustainable vehicle design engineer.”


I am a second-year mechanical engineering student. Born and raised in Brooklyn, I have acclimated to Tandon life well and strive to use my education to help improve my city’s transportation system.

During my first summer of college, I took a position at the Center for K12 Stem Education as a virtual instructor. Teaching high school students how to create CAD models and wire complex circuits, as well as introducing them to the basics of coding, was a rewarding experience. Prior to this, my teaching experiences were limited to just tutoring, so this was a learning experience for me as well.

During my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, bike riding, taking my pit bull to the park, and trying out new food spots with friends. I also like reading articles about green-tech breakthroughs and scientific discoveries, especially those regarding the ocean and outer space.
