Researcher Profile

I received the bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and master’s degree in engineering from the Milwaukee School of Engineering in 2012 and 2014, respectively. I am currently an ME Ph.D. candidate at Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI. During my time at MSOE, I was a research assistant in the Rapid Prototyping Research (RPI) laboratory and I had the opportunity to serve as an engineering intern at Parker Hannifin’s hydraulic cartridge systems group located in Lincolnshire, IL. Contributions to the field include the design and modeling of flexible fluidic actuators and their applications. Read More →
