While the automotive industry is undergoing an electrification revolution in pursuit of sustainable transportation, the marine sector lags behind. Revolution Outboards is committed to closing that gap by designing and manufacturing electric marine propulsion systems to replace conventional petroleum outboard engines.

    Designing an electric outboard motor with a focus on aesthetic functionality is a project that ties together the diverse passions that led me to the field of engineering. Having independently designed and built a 14’ wooden sailboat in high school while also restoring classic machines, I am deeply invested in both learning and inventing through hands-on projects. I am also an avid car enthusiast and very interested in sustainable transportation. This research not only furthers each of these passions, but builds on the interdisciplinary connections between classic machines, artistry, and cutting edge sustainable technology a convergence that lies at the core of my enthusiasm for engineering.

    I spend my summers in upstate NY, restoring vintage boats and engines, then modifying the engines, hull structures, and propellers to maximize each boat's efficiency. Working on these boats has been my passion since I earned my boating license at age 10. As the powertrain leader for Princeton Racing Electric, my work on campus is centered on designing the most efficient way to translate power from the batteries into forward motion of the vehicle by optimizing motor, motor controller, and battery integration. 
    This startup venture is a combination of my love for the water and my knowledge of electric propulsion systems.
