Graduate Research Assistant

Continuing my undergraduate research in developing real-life applications for desktop and at-home 3-D printers I was also responsible for assisting in the undergraduate research projects ensuring knowledge was successfully transferred between students.

Main research focus was on developing low-cost solar photovoltaic racking systems utilizing 3-D printing and the systems developed showed a potential for 80% cost reduction compared to commercially available alternatives.

Additionally, I consulted with schools to adopt 3-D printing in the classroom and facilitated teachers’ expertise of the technology with non-profit partner Square One via 3-D printer building workshops and continued support.
