Interested in learning more about robotics in general and becoming a better engineer as a result. Also interested in applying new knowledge to educate students in the classroom about technology, robotics, science, & engineering.
Certainly, if there was anything worth hearing me talk about.
By trade I'm an aerodynamicist. I do research, design, testing, & engineering of turbomachinery (primarily fan) systems. I'm most knowledgeable in the fields of fluid dynamics, but can talk to a variety of topics. I'm also highly involved in STEM Education Outreach in Philadelphia and have worked closely with a variety of schools in the area ranging from private institutions to Philly public schools. I've been involved with numerous robotics clubs and am responsible for starting 2 robotics clubs at local area schools.
I'm interested in learning more about Arduino. My poor Arduino is sitting around collecting dust. I'm planning on using it as a flight controller for a quad copter that I intend on designing...eventually. I'm also interested in learning more about Lego Mindstorms and currently use these kits in the classroom as well as building robots that chase my 1-year old around. I'm very open to learning all I can though.
Aerospace & Mechanical Engineer for the US Navy. From WV by way of DC. Currently residing in Manayunk.
