I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering from MIT (2014) and an MS in Engineering and Management with a focus in User-Centered Design from MIT (2017). I am pursuing my Executive Masters in Sustainability Transition Management from the Università di Bologna (expected graduation September 2022). I am a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Project Management Professional (PMP). I have an active SECRET Clearance. I have worked as a sexual assault prevention and education advocate at MIT, as a summer intern at the startup Freight Farms, as a Process Improvement Engineer deployed to the Supply Chain at General Dynamics Electric Boat (EB) in Groton, CT, and most recently as a Management Analyst government contractor to the N8 Budget Office on the US Navy Base at Capodichino in Naples, Italy. I hope to become more deeply involved in the field of Sustainability and policy-making.
