Undergraduate Researcher

October 2020 Boston, MA
“I was able to move up in this position relatively quickly, moving from volunteering to work for college credit to paid work.”

Mechanical Engineering Researcher

June 2021 Boston, MA
“I really enjoyed getting to work in a mechanical engineering lab with graduate students of my study. I learned so much about subjects that I had not yet encountered in classes, and got to have an inside look at what graduate or post-doc work is like. I worked on an independent project, but had ample support from my mentors.”
