What advice can you offer to young scientists or engineers?

Being a young engineer I have found goal setting and mentorship to be of tremendous value to me. After I set my early, mid, and late career goals I found that it was much easier to identify opportunities for growth, and to ask meaningful questions of my mentors.

When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?

At first I wanted to be an Aeronautical Design Engineer, however after talking with my mom I decided to become a mechanical engineer since the mechanical discipline offers more engineering breadth.

Do you have any hobbies?

Eating Quarterback Crunch ice cream while watching college football, playing basketball at least 5 hours a week and participating in student outreach activities.
