Hi, I'm Brian Reaney. I'm a junior Mech E. I'm on the cross country and track teams at tufts. I'm also into skiing, movies, and frisbee, and my newest hobby is film photography. It's super cool. In the summer I'm a camp counselor at Camp Belknap on Lake Winnepesaukee in NH and it's very awesome. This summer will be my 13th since my first year as a camper in 3rd grade.
I found this video of a lego robot used to make a mechanical model of realistic human motion. Simulating lifelike motion is a big part of a lot of modern robotics so I thought this was a pretty relevant example. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKrHTYqm8pw
Hi I'm Matt and I'm a Junior studying Mechanical Engineering. I am from Schenectady NY. In my free time I enjoy running, skiing, photography and tinkering. Not sure if this qualifies as a robot but here's a box I found on YouTube.
Hi everyone, my name is Rob Hrabchak and I'm a senior MechE, pursuing an Entrepreneurial Leadership minor. I grew up in Princeton, NJ and enjoy running in my free time. As of today, I've run a marathon or further in 13 different states, and my extended family briefly held the world record for the largest group of relatives to complete a single marathon (there were sixteen of us!)
My name is Riley Kolus, I'm a senior in Mechanical Engineering from Los Angeles, CA. Though I am ME, I really want to be an ER Doctor and plan to go to medical school after graduating. Outside of school, I spend a lot of time working on an ambulance in Somerville and as a member of Tufts EMS, so you will likely see me wearing a radio in class from time to time when I am on call. Apart from medicine, I like to listen to music/podcasts in my free time and play banjo when I can.
My name is Osvaldo Calzada. I was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico, and home is in the Chicago Area. I am a senior studying Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics. I enjoy longboarding, dancing, and reading old urban legends.
I'm Brian, a junior mechanical engineering student. Outside of class, I play on the Tufts EMen (ultimate frisbee) and coach youth soccer. I also recently joined Professor Kemmerling's research team and will be improving how fluid flow in human arteries is modeled and analyzed.
Hello! My name is Shunta Muto. I am a senior with major in mechanical engineering. I was raised in Japan for 8 years, Thailand for 4 years, and Kentucky for 8 years. I have interest in baseball and golf!
Hey! My name is Omar Sanchez and I am a Junior Mechanical Engineer. I was born and raised in Southern California and for some reason came to the freezing Northeast. Apart from Engineering I follow various sports, but mainly tennis, soccer, and basketball. I love computer games and enjoyed building my own computer very recently. I am really excited to learn more about robotics this semester!
Honestly, what's better than robots fighting? Nothing....
My name is Aruni Kacker, and I am a junior Mechanical Engineering, and possibly Math, major. I do research with Professor Kemmerling studying fluid flow in the body. I also dance with the Dance department and on the ballroom team, and am in the Tufts MMA club.
My name is Isaac Collins, I am a sophomore at Tufts studying Mechanical engineering, and my main interests in engineering involve space and rocketry, but I am excited to explore robotics too! Outside of classes, I am a member of the Juggling, Ballroom, and Taekwondo clubs.
Hi! My name is Martin Majkut and I am a junior mechanical engineer. My parents are originally from Poland, but moved to the US before I was born. In high school, I formed a passion for robotics and building. I am also pretty competitive, which is why I joined the Tufts Electric Racing Team (which I now lead as co-captain) and the Tufts Robotics Club (I am the current mechanical specialist for the club). I am also an ambassador with STEM Ambassadors, a group of Tufts students who present at local area high schools and try to promote the interest in and the diversity of STEM fields.
My name is Alex Klein. I'm a junior studying mechanical engineering with a minor in engineering education. I do a bit of research with Professor Matson's materials lab, teach engineering to elementary school students through STOMP, and am a member of one of Tufts' sketch comedy groups, Major: Undecided.
I'm Julio, a Mechanical Engineering major and junior. This is my third semester at Tufts after transferring from UMass Boston.
I'm part of the R.E.A.L. program here at Tufts which just means I'm older than the average student on campus (quarter of a century old now!). My family is originally from Costa Rica but I've lived in the Boston area most of my life.
I am part of the Tufts MMA Club so please ask me any questions about joining!
Bio: My research interests are clean energy, batteries, and engineering education. I've been doing research in Professor Iryna Zenyuk's sustainable electrochemistry lab for two years. I am a track and field athlete and love to play with legos and dance.
Dr. Ethan Danahy is a Research Assistant Professor at the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) with secondary appointment in the Department of Computer Science within the School of Engineering at Tufts University, outside of Boston MA. Having received his graduate degrees in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from Tufts University, he continues research in the design, implementation, and evaluation of different educational technologies. Ranging from software and hardware to interfaces and environments, Prof. Danahy explores how these tools can improve interactive educational pedagogies through supports aimed at learners in K-12 through university classrooms. With particular attention to engaging students in the STEAM content areas, he focuses his investigations on enhancing creativity and innovation, supporting better documentation, and encouraging collaborative learning.
I used to run fast and used to be able to quickly solve a rubik's cube. I wish I could do both better again.
