The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State), University Park, PA, US, Bachelors, Energy Engineering

Energy Engineering is a conglomeration of all the engineering disciplines and takes a mix of courses from each. I have taken mechanical, electrical, and architectural engineering courses as well as chemical and industrial engineering courses. Our major involves all energy sources and their uses from coal and natural gas, to solar and wind. My focus in my studies has been renewable energy and energy efficiency in buildings. I have performed research in residential buildings, looking into energy efficient modular construction. My other research has involved design of a PV solar array to offset the consumption of electric vehicles.

NECA Green Energy Challenge National, 2nd Place

The competition challenged NECA student chapters to find a parking garage and design an energy efficiency upgrade for the structure. The Penn State team designed an energy efficiency improvement for the Fraser Street Parking garage in downtown State College, including a lighting retrofit, electrical vehicle charging, and a PV carport array for the top level. My role in this design was the 61 kW pv array for the structure. Our design took second place in the national competition after presenting our designs in Washington DC in 2013.
