After graduating from Miami University in 2010 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, Andrew was eager to begin a career as a Territory Manager with a leading fluid and gas handling control company. As a territory manager, he was able to gain valuable experience in several engineering and business departments as well as a wide exposure to many different industries. The opportunity to see the technology being implemented in industry was what attracted Andrew to the field of robotics.

Andrew is excited to continue his academic career in this new direction. He was drawn to the robotics field because of its interdisciplinary nature that requires both technical skills and a creative approach to problem solving. He is looking forward to learning more about the opportunities and challenges faced in the field of robotics to apply in his career.
