I was born in Maryville, TN, and have been Knoxville-area native my whole life, including my undergraduate career at the University of Tennessee – Knoxville. During my time as an undergraduate, I gained valuable experience in composites manufacturing working with Dr. Uday Vaidya and the Institute for Advanced Composites and Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) as an undergraduate research assistant. From this exposure, I have developed an interest in fiber reinforced composite materials and their applications in industry.
