it’s nice to meet you.
I’m a mechanical engineer and I design industrial packaging equipment. I graduated in 2015 with my S.B. in MechE from MIT. I’m a renaissance woman – I love when I get the opportunity to pick up something new. The best innovations come from cross-disciplinary collaboration, and having varied interests puts me in a good position to contribute to meaningful projects.
Sealed Air Corporation, Mechanical Engineer
June 2015 - Present
I come to work every day to solve tough problems. I look how how and why machines work (and don’t) and design solutions that help us make better products and production processes. I design industrial machinery for production facilities to take raw and converted materials, and transform them into the packaging materials we use every day.
Battelle Memorial Institute, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineer Intern
Summer 2012, 2013, 2014
As an intern at Battelle I first worked as a manufacturing engineering intern in their Production and Field Support low-volume manufacturing facility. I designed custom workstations for build cells and learned about various electronic production processes. I also developed a software tool to implement a paperless build instruction procedure on the plant floor, with integrated revision and quality control.
I then worked in Tactical Systems, developing test fixtures, test plans, and running customer support lines during a product trial. Finally, I designed parts as a mechanical engineering intern in Medical and Consumer products, helping to bring a new pumping system from idea to functional prototype by the end of my summer term.
