Profile Biography 
I am a faculty member at the University of New Haven in Connecticut. I spend my time in the maker-space, playing with 3D printers and findin ways to introduce new technology into my classroom. Previously, I was at Arizona State University and led the Engineering Projects in Community Service Program. I finished my Ph.D. Georgia Tech in 2017 after studying for for 5 years to develop machine learning algorithms that train a computer to recognize stress or depression in adults with aphasia, a language disorder. I graduated from the University of Miami in 2012 with my B.S. in Electrical Engineering. Outside of my time teaching, I stay healthy by training for triathlons (swim,bike,run races), I previously volunteered at a cat shelter twice a week, and I love dancing (country dancing, salsa dancing, and other type too!). I have worked with students of all ages to explore engineering in events ranging from a few hours to a year long weekly engineering class, and am happy to talk with those interested in engineering as a career path.
