My current research is on evaluating the potential energy, carbon and cost savings associated with the successful development of flexible sheet metal forming processes. This research is in collaboration with Ford and Boeing.
I did my undergraduate and masters degrees in mechanical engineering at the University of Cambridge (UK). I worked as a navel architect for one year before returning to Cambridge to complete a PhD investigating sustainability in the steel and aluminium industries.
I am a Masters student in Operations Research and I am interested in applying optimization to the recycling sector. My other passion is entrepreneurship and I have been applying data analytics to predict startups growth. Before coming to MIT, I studied Production and Management Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, Italy (2013). During my undergraduate degree I joined study-aborad programs, attending industrial engineering classes at Universidad Pontificia Comillas in Madrid and Chinese marketing courses at LSE in Beijing. I am an active member of the Graduate Women and the Italian students organizations at MIT.
I am a Master of Science student in Mechanical Engineering at MIT. I am studying the environmental impact of global automobile manufacturing. Before this, I worked on mathematical and simulation models of manufacturing systems and transportation networks. I have a bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pune, India, and a Master of Engineering in Manufacturing from MIT.
I graduated from University of Michigan (ME) and Shanghai Jiaotong University (EE) in 2013. I am interested in energy use investigation in additive manufacturing and cryogenic machining.
Fun fact: Come and see me this summer, I shall be wearing purple long hair like the hit-girl ready to "Kick-Ass"
I'm a Masters student working on sheet metal forming environmental analysis. Previous to joining the lab, I spent 8 years in environmental compliance, including 4 years onsite at a refinery. I received my bachelors in General Engineering from the University of Illinois.
As a student in the Technology and Policy Program at MIT, I am interested in how policy impacts the effective use of advances in engineering, particularly in the areas of material selection and recycling. My research involves modeling material flows, energy use, and operational costs within a recycling facility. I received a BA in Chemistry from Dartmouth College in 2006, and studied Mechanical Engineering at Boston University from 2012-2014. In the years between academic pursuits, I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Cameroon, worked as a radiochemist for the FDA, and helped manage an electricity distribution startup in Tanzania. When not studying, cooking, or reading, I love being outdoors, usually on a bicycle.
I am a visiting student from RWTH Aachen University in Germany.
My current research is on energy and resource efficiency of additive manufacturing technologies. I have a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration from RWTH Aachen University. During my undergraduate degree I spent six month at the LMAS at UC Berkeley and worked on Life-cycle management of abrasive manufacturing.
