Julie is currently in her junior year at Harvard and is very excited to be co-VP of Student Projects. Last year, she gathered a team of undergraduates to compete in NASA’s Moon Work Competition http://moonwork.larc.nasa.gov/, Her goals for this year involve getting more students involved in various competitions and provide a venue for those who are interested to get more hands-on experiences in engineering.
Julie is also the President of Harvard College Engineers without Borders http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/~ewb/. The group is currently working on a clean water project in the Dominican Republic. The project has also led her to work on developing an indicator for solar water disinfection in collaboration with a local engineering firm, Templeman Automation, as well as other EWB members. This past summer, Julie also had a 6-week long internship with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in which she helped in field testing the ATHLETE robot, both in Pasadena, CA, and in D-RATS testing in Black Point, AZ; it was a very inspiring experience, and Julie is hoping to share her enthusiasm by making a variety of projects and competitions available for students to engage in.
