Share an inspiring story about your time at the Keller Center.

At the end of my PSIP internship with Kinetic, I had an exit interview with my manager; I'll always remember his advice for being a good engineer:

"Don't just identify problems, create solutions."

That really encapsulated what makes engineering special to me-- leveraging technical and creative skill to solve challenges and make a positive difference.

How have you beneļ¬ted from your involvement with the Keller Center?

The experience I gained working at Kinetic in such an intimate role not only changed how I look at engineering -- both from mechanical and product design perspectives -- but also offered incredible mentorship from Kinetic's CEO, CTO, and director of hardware. The technical, practical, and entrepreneurial lessons I learned will last with me long beyond I graduate Princeton.

What are your academic or career goals?

I want to apply my technical skills and experience to make a difference in the world, whether that's automating our everyday tasks, designing robotics to go where humans cannot, or blending the human-technology interface to improve reduce risk and improve safety.
