WELCOME

I am passionate about finding new ways to apply human-centered design in mechanical engineering, whether in designing gripper device for people with reduced hand function or as the President of the Human Powered Vehicles Club at UC Berkeley. I seek to improve quality of life in all my projects, helping those around me with engineering.

NOTABLE PROJECTS

suitX Exoskeletons

I work part time at suitX, an exoskeleton startup founded by UC Berkeley's Professor Kazerooni. My duties include exoskeleton design, device prototyping, user testing, and stress testing (both physical and using SolidWorks FEA) for various R&D projects.

Mechanical Tetraplegic Gripper Device

I designed, modeled and built a mechanical gripper for a tetraplegic user through the EnableTech Club. I redesigned the device in my Global Product Development Class to be more user friendly, mass-producible, and reliable.

Speed Bike, Human Powered Vehicles Club

I led the overall bike design and manufacturing in a team of twenty-five in the Human Powered Vehicles Club and specialized in the frame design, performing FEA analysis to ensure its safety. The vehicle will compete in the IHPVA World Human-Powered Speed Challenge in September 2020.

Delta-Leaning Tricycle, Human Powered Vehicles Club

I performed aerodynamic design and analysis to build a recumbent delta-leaning tricycle in the Human Powered Vehicles Club that I now lead at UC Berkeley. The bike took 3rd place at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers E-Fest West Human Powered Vehicle Challenge.

Tensegrity Search-and-Rescue Robot, BEST Lab

I designed frictionless end caps at the BEST Lab for a 6-bar spherical tensegrity robot intended for use as a search and rescue robot.

ABOUT ME

I'm a fourth-year undergraduate student at UC Berkeley who cares about connecting with the community in as many ways as possible. Besides my industry experience and academic lab engineering projects, I've created countless laser-cut presents for my friends and family. I enjoy meeting people from outside the U.S. and speak French, German, and Serbo-Croatian. When I'm not working on my latest design project, you can find me swing dancing, playing violin in the UC Berkeley Chamber Orchestra, playing classical piano, baking bread, or swimming.
