Why did you choose ESTEEM?

I chose ESTEEM because I am eager to combine my passion for technology and interest in entrepreneurship. I believe this program will provide me with invaluable opportunities to work on startups and with new-age technologies.

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

This capstone project will be exploring the market for high-density urban battery storage solutions with Energy Vault. The solution aims to leverage Energy Vault’s proprietary battery storage technology to completely revolutionize the renewable energy storage industry. The student will be performing analysis for the company to determine the best course of action for the technology. Energy Vault wants to enable a renewable world and create a suite of new energy storage technologies. They develop and deploy turnkey sustainable energy storage solutions designed to transform the world’s approach to utility-scale energy storage in realizing decarbonization, while maintaining grid resiliency. Energy Vault is facilitating the shift to a circular economy, while accelerating the clean energy transition for its customers.

What do you hope to do after ESTEEM?

After ESTEEM, I want to live in the US for awhile. I hope that after gaining industry experience, I can start my own company. Currently I’m pursuing roles that will allow me to have more of a business focus, while still leveraging my technical knowledge. I want to make a real impact with my work.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I have always been a passionate sportsman. I played four years of college basketball at Trinity, as well as football (soccer) and Gaelic football. I’m also a big fan of watching documentaries, watching sports and listening to music.
