And I Make Stuff
A Bit About Me
Hi! My name is Jerry and I like to build things. I love to develop elegant solutions to complex issues. As the Co-Founder and CEO of Hack The Pandemic, I have worked with our 300+ volunteers to coordinate distributed manufacturing efforts to help fight the pandemic and respond to disasters across the US. We have produced over 20,000 units of PPE for hospitals in need. I am a Freshman Engineering and Management major at Clarkson University. Outside of classes, I am heavily involved in the Ignite program both as an Ignite Presidential Fellow and a production manager for the Presidents Challenge. I also volunteer for CUEMS, the student run Ambulance on campus. This website serves to showcase my myriad of projects and research I've worked on over the years.
The FIRST Tech Challenge is a robotics competition for students in grades 7–12 to compete head to head, by designing, building, and programming a robot to compete in an alliance format for several awards. I am the Co-President of the team and help to teach underclassmen the ins and outs of robotics.
Original Science Research
The OSR program at my school has offered me the opportunity to conduct a research study regarding several novel means of locomotion on the Mini-RHex robotic platform. I have recently been named a Regeneron STS top 300 Scholar for my research regarding the platform.
MATE ROV Competition
In the MATE ROV Competition, Students are tasked with designing, building, and piloting a underwater remotely operated vehicle capable of inspection and manipulation of commercial materials or scientific samples. I was responsible for managing team Sponsor Relations and Community Outreach as well as working on the design team
