I am a 5th year Engineering Physics student with a passion for science, technology, music, and nature. I have been involved with the team since I started at UBC. I have been responsible for doing a lot of the 3D modelling and fabrication for the drivetrain. I was also responsible for the mechanical design of the arm of the robot. I became team lead after returning from an internship at Tesla motors in California. In my spare time I like to mountain bike and play electronic music. My goal at UBC is to gain a strong physics education, and a wide range of technical skills that will allow me contribute to society, and help people live more successful, happy, and fulfilling lives.
