Joel received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2018. As an undergraduate, he participated in robotics research and also interned for John Deere. His senior design project involved creating an autonomous, mobile robot cart for transporting storage bins to different warehouse drop-off locations.

He is interested in designing adaptive, robotics platforms that can be used to solve problems in a variety of industries. As a member of the 2019 MSR cohort, he hopes to acquire skills that prepare him for a career in robotics, and learn more about emerging trends within the field. His passions outside of engineering include mixed martial arts, rock climbing, solo travel, and film.
