I come from Ottawa, Canada where I completed my undergraduate studies in aerospace engineering in 2012. Following graduation, I worked in the R&D team at GasTOPS, Ottawa developing laser-based sensors and machine learning algorithms for engine health monitoring applications. I am currently pursuing a Master of Science in the Aeronautics and Astronautics program at MIT. My research at LAE is focused on alternative fuels for aviation and I am involved in assessing the environmental performance of these fuels over their life cycles.
