As a mentor for 2.760, I supervised a team of graduate students working on a slope adaptable prosthetic foot in collaboration with the US Veterans Affairs. This class combines rigorous engineering theory and user-centered product design to create technologies for developing and emerging markets. It covers machine design theory to parametrically analyze technologies; bottom-up/top-down design processes; engagement of stakeholders in the design process; socioeconomic factors that affect adoption of products; and developing/emerging market dynamics and their effect on business and technology.
As a TA for 2.002, I helped conducting lectures, recitations and laboratory hands on experiments. This class provided Mechanical engineering undergraduate students a fundamental understanding of the mechanical behavior of materials as well a quantitative knowledge of continuum mechanics of solids including elasticity, plasticity, fatigue, fracture and creep.
During my undergraduate senior year, I was volunteering as a tutor for a class of 15 under-priviledged high school students. We were in charged of providing support in Mathematics, Physics, Geography and History. We organized challenges and activities to make their learning experience as rich and enjoyable as possible.
