I joined Professor Wright’s group in Fall 2014 as a graduate student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UC, Berkeley. I received my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN) in May 2014. During my undergraduate, I worked on topologically interlocked material design and shape morphing of structures made of these materials. Currently my research is focused on electrical energy harvester design and degradation of piezoelectric materials.

Research Interests

Material Design for Sustainable Energy, Energy Harvesting Device Design, Extension of Product Life Cycles
