What is your role in the student competitions team? What competitions are you focusing on?
My role in Student Competition Team focuses on supporting Robotics Competitions, I primarily support RoboNation competitions.
What big project are you currently working on?
I am currently focusing in creating tutorials on Designing MPC Control for Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV) and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (UAV) and physical scenario simulation to simulate operating conditions for unmanned vehicles.
Which recommendation would you give students thinking about student competitions and career paths?
Student competitions are a great way to gain exposure and learn how to utilize the theoretical knowledge you learn in schools. Don’t hesitate to take risk, keep trying to solve problems with new approaches.
Why do you like working in education and collaborating with student teams?
I have participated in student competitions when I was in engineering school. Working in such competition teams is always fun, because of the satisfaction I felt after building something hard. This role keeps me connected to it.

What is your role in the student competitions team? What competitions are you focusing on?
I support our student competitions that focus on Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, so I develop tutorials and getting started resources for participating students. . I focus on the WiDS Datathon, the George B. Moody Physionet Challenge, and MathWorks-hosted DrivenData Competitions.
What big project are you currently working on?
Recently, I have been working with DrivenData to set up our next competition with them!
Which recommendation would you give students thinking about student competitions and career paths?
Competitions are a great way to apply what you know to a real-world challenge, and you are almost guaranteed to learn something new along the way! They provide great experiences and interesting projects that allow you to grow in a way that most classrooms can’t provide. Even if it’s not your exact area of expertise, competitions can be a really enriching experience and can help you discover something you love. I recommend them for everyone, no matter where you are at in your education!
Why do you like working in education and collaborating with student teams?
I’ve worked with students a lot over the past few years as a Teaching Assistant in various capacities, and it is so rewarding to get to help people find their place in the world. Students are constantly asking questions and driving innovation because of their ability to see things in a new light, and I appreciate the opportunity to give them some of the tools to do that. By supporting current students, I feel like I am helping create a brighter future for us all.
