Hello! I am an Industrial Design student at Georgia Tech and live in Atlanta, GA. I have an interest in pursuing health and wellness design as well as an interest in product design. I am set to graduate in May of 2021 from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelors of Science in Industrial Design. My strengths include sketching, 3D modeling, and physical prototyping.

Mazda Design Language Project

Mazda Design Language Project

Team Members: Rebekah Hilton, Amelia Keller, Rebecca Sun, Mary McGreggor, Mohammad Soudachi, and Bridgid Winston
Class: ID 3042 | Instructor: Professor Shankwiler

This project was to create a bike design within the brand of Mazda that would be seen more as a vehicle than a burden to the rider. The bike design features a custom made saddle with signaling for other vehicles, adaptable riding modes, and unique wheel release fob design.

Renders of a logistical system

Verizon Connect Project

Verizon Connect Project

Team Members: Swaraj Agarwal, Soniya Bhagat, Claire Smith, and Jonathan Vater
Class: ID 4082 | Li, Springle

This project was to create an asset tracking system in the construction industry for Verizon Connect. This system would be utilized by trade contractors for logistical coordination and management in the construction industry. Our main design focus was for the Witness tracker which features GPS, LTE, Bluetooth, and RFID scanning abilities and battery life of 1-2 years.

Class: ID 4081 | Li, Springle

Our project goals were to create an airline postural support system for people with physical disabilities. This system would be an option provided by commercial airlines and replace the seat cushion on the airline. The support system features an adjustable tilt angle, adjustable lumbar support, and a footrest attachment.

Class:  ID 3042  |  Instructor: Kevin Shankwiler

For this project we were to take an existing car brand and create a light individual transportation sister brand that would appeal to the consumer of said car brand. Our final deliverables included full brand development and completed and in depth CAD models of the bike and exhibition space. My responsibilities were focused on the bike's design with an emphasis on the custom saddle and signal light design.

Airline Disability Project

Airline Disability Project

Teammates:  Drew Alberts, Sophia Burdell, Daniel Nixon, and Jun Yumada
Class:  ID 4081  |  Instructors: Wayne Li, Steven Sprigle

For this project, collaborating with both the Industrial Design and Mechanical Engineering Fields, we were to create a postural support system for airline passengers with physical disabilities. Along with the design of the product and process to implement the system, we also had to ensure our design followed the FAA regulations as well as test the feasibility of our design.

Class: ID 2024  | Instructor: Lisa Marks

This project was to create a human-scale lamp that exhibits physical beauty when off and celebrates light when on. This project was to help us explore design in a large scale to fill a space as well as explore form, space, and light.

Device Speaker Stand

Device Speaker Stand

Class: ID 2102  |  Instructor: Tim Purdy

This project was to tell my CAD modeling skills using the applications of Solidworks and Keyshot. This stand was made to hold an iPhone 6 with a headphone jack to plug into the speakers on the stand. The stand also features a sliding wooden panel for the option to change the orientation of the smart phone on the stand. The speaker features a Stereo 20w Class D Audio Amplifier.
