Research Interests

My research experience began at the beginning of my college career. I participated in RAMP (Research, Academics and Mentoring Pathways) the summer before my freshman year (2018) which sparked my interest in research. I have done research focused on acoustics as well as data analitics and cyber physical systems.​In a recent publication ‘Analysis of a passive radio frequency excited acoustic transducer’ that I co-authored we investigated the physical processes that govern the operation of a passive acoustic transducer are analyzed and modeled. The wireless battery-free transducer derives its power from an externally applied electromagnetic field generated by a radio transmitter. The audio signal is encoded in the backscattered electromagnetic field. Electro-mechano-acoustical analogies are developed and presented. Power generation, sound transduction, and radio frequency backscatter transmission of the audio signal are analyzed. The resonant frequency of the passive acoustic transducer derived from this analysis is comparable to those reported in the literature.​​​

Other Activities

  • RAMP Mentor (Summer of 2020 and 2021). Worked with incoming engineering students through the RAMP Program. In 2020 I worked with the students on aruduino based programming and project. In 2021 I helped lead the students through a face tracking project using open CV.
