I live with my wife and twin sons around Chadds Ford, PA. I chose to pursue a career in Mechanical Engineering because I have a very curious personality and I love figuring out how things work.
When I’m not spending time with my family or working, I enjoy reading about new technologies, working on my computer, playing some video games, and cooking.
My pronouns are:
I work in a laboratory where we run tests with engines which have been removed from different cars. In order for a non-electric car to work, it has to burn fuel in the form of gasoline or diesel fuel. When a car burns fuel, it releases small amounts of gases which are harmful to you and the Earth.
My laboratory runs tests in order to develop a product which decreases the amount of harmful gases which are released by cars.
The type of product my laboratory helps develop is referred to as a catalytic converter, as shown below.
