How are you involved with the Keller Center?
Together with fellow graduate student Cory Issacs, I am working as a University Administrative Fellow (UAF) with the Center's Dr. Derek Lidow to plan, conduct, and curate a new multimedia interview series with leading local and global entrepreneurs. This exciting project has given me the opportunity to meet with and learn from some of the most successful founders and backers about what makes a good entrepreneur.
What advice would you have for students about getting involved at the Keller Center?
If you have any interest in entrepreneurship, no matter how small, just do it. You probably are thinking to yourself that your don't have time to get involved, but I would bet you probably have more time than you think. I think many students make a big mistake by telling themselves that their research has to take up all of their time. The more things you try and the more diversified you make your Princeton experience, the potential future dividends become bigger, more surprising, and more exciting.
What are your academic or career goals?
After completing my PhD in structural engineering, I hope to leverage my background in architecture and engineering to help the AEC industry (architecture/engineering/construction) transition to the 21st century by developing and adopting new digital tools, software, and workflows.
