Research Interests

One big problem that I see in our world is with security and making sure everyone is safe online and in person. There are many malicious people in the world and with the upcoming growing media age, more and more vulnerabilities will be revealed. Educating people and staying with the times on updates and staying secure and knowledgeable about our actions online.

 I’m a current Senior at Lowell High School who is interested in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I love video games of all kinds and am always looking for people to play with. I am a rower and coxswain on my school’s rowing team and would love to continue this in the future. I love to build and create things and participate in the Lowell Kinetic Sculpture Race every summer and fall. I hope to further those passions with RAMP as well as in college.
