Where are you currently employed, and what is your job title?
I am a mechanical engineer at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), working in the Tactical Electronic Warfare Division. I am also a robotic support engineer at Amazon Global Robotics, working in the CS/Technical Support department.

What are your work responsibilities?
At the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, I conduct research and development in support of the navy’s tactical electronic warfare requirements and missions. In my work, I analyze electronic warfare systems for determining their performance and improving their effectiveness in relation to measures of electronic warfare support, electronic countermeasures, and counter-countermeasures. Research and development in the Tactical Electronic Warfare Division support the development of next-generation EW technology in a range of technical areas.

At Amazon Global Robotics, I support the development of exciting new robotics technology across the company. I work directly with hardware engineers, regional support managers, and operations leaders to optimize the performance of advanced robotics systems. I build deep expertise in technical and functional areas so I can work directly with our fulfillment center operators and maintenance teams to solve complex and time-sensitive issues.

How does your current job relate to your degree from RIT/NTID?
Some engineering aspects of my degrees relate to my current jobs, like the intensive courses provided by RIT that prepared me for the fast-paced engineering environment, requiring me to achieve deliverables and perform critical tasks. As a result of taking these intensive mechanical engineering and robotics courses, I developed a strong foundation of knowledge that has enabled me to achieve success as an engineer.
