Electrical and Computer Engineering

UW Sensor Systems Laboratory with Prof. Joshua Smith

2022 - Present

Works on WISP, a family of batteryless sensors that are powered by and communicate entirely through UHF RFID power harvesting and backscatter.

Also works on Deep Contact Graph Routing, a collaboration with Astrobotic, developing new routing protocols for the Moon.

  • Created framework for simulating routing protocols with RF aware mobile agents.
  • D. Ta, R. Menon, J. Taggart, A. Tettamanti, S. Feaser, P. Torrado, J. Smith, “Roaming DTN: Integrating Unscheduled Nodes into Contact Plan Based DTN Networks”, to be presented at CCAA (June 2023)

Lake Submersible with Prof. William Keat

Summer 2019

Worked with Professor Keat of Union College in his mechanical engineering lab on a ballast-controlled submersible designed to explore and photograph a local lake.

  • Coordinated with Union’s Geosciences Department for our in-field test

Technical Design Lead · NY STEAM Bus

2016 - 2021

A student-founded and led school bus retrofitted with STEAM education technology that produces and teaches lessons to middle and elementary school students.

  • Responsible for technology used in student lessons and for operating the program


2020 - 2021

A system to localize and identify ambient noises and present them to a user through a wearable device.

  • Developed a 3D sound localization algorithm using a microphone array with phase shift estimation and created a heads-up display to communicate this information to a user
