Why did you choose your major?  I wanted to be involved in the medical industry.

Describe your experience working with QL+ so far.  I have worked on 3 different QL+ projects and have enjoyed handing off our devices to our challengers. The biggest challenge has been finding a design that meets our challenger’s specifications, but it is always rewarding to see their reactions and the excitement when they see the design/manufacturing.

What is it like working with your Challenger?  Working with our challenger has been a good experience. We have been able to contact him in Washington D.C. through calls and video chats.

What would you say to other students about QL+?   It is a rewarding experience to work directly with amazing people in the community.

What are your plans after graduation? 
I want to visit my home country and travel a bit before starting work full-time.

What three words best describe you?  Dad joke master.
