    PERSONAL STATEMENT

    I am an experienced postdoctoral researcher in experimental astrophysics with a background in mechanical engineering and nanotechnology, which has prepared me to be a creative problem solver, and makes me comfortable in multidisciplinary environments.
    Proficient in developing projects, managing research teams, and ensuring efficient project completion, and skilled in designing and testing mechanical, electrical, and cryogenic elements, I like to consider myself an “Über Engineer” or engineer of everything. I am seeking to apply my knowledge and experience to an industry position with dynamic, growing organization.
    If you are looking for a passionate individual, a doer, somebody with a broad spectrum of knowledge and leadership skills, I am the right person for you.
