My research interest is robot assisted telehealth. The goal is to create a system that allows a home healthcare worker to use a releoperated robot to remotely check in with patients and the home environment.
I earned my BS degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati. During that time, I gained a variety of interdisciplinary experiences in manufacturing, bio-sensing, and software engineering, as well as international experiences living in Germany, England, and South Korea. Outside of academics, I love to travel, bake cookies, read, and snuggle with my cat. I am also a 5th degree blackbelt in Taekwondo, and have recently started boxing.
