Why did you choose ESTEEM? 

I chose ESTEEM because I was looking for an avenue to further my education that would tie my business and engineering backgrounds together. ESTEEM was the perfect fit!

What is your Capstone Project and why are you excited about it?

For my capstone project, I’m working with Johnson Controls, Inc. - Data Center Solutions business unit to determine if (and how) they should enter and expand into the semiconductor physical infrastructure market with its portfolio of cooling (AHUs) and modular solutions (MDCs, MERs). They are currently at the top of their field producing data center physical infrastructure solutions. Over the course of this year, I will analyze and assess the global semiconductor market to determine if they could build the physical infrastructure technology to have a competitive advantage in this market, developing a market assessment, high-level solution requirements for the market, and a go-to-market launch strategy. I am so excited to learn more about this industry, as well as to work with such an interesting and dynamic company!

What do you hope to do after ESTEEM? 

I look forward to exploring different avenues this year, both through my capstone project and side hustles. I don't know what the future has in store, but I'm excited for this year of growth!

What do you like to do in your free time? 

When I'm not working, I love to run, meet up with friends, go sailing, walk my dog, and go to concerts! I was also an Irish dancer, so you'll still find me breaking out into random steps as well!
