And I Make Stuff
A Bit About Me
Hello! My name is Jerry and I like to build stuff. I strive to develop elegant solutions to complex issues and am interested in projects that merge technology and business. As Co-Founder and CEO of Hack The Pandemic, I collaborated with over 300 volunteers to organize decentralized production of PPE, resulting in the production of more than 20,000 Face Shields for hospitals in need. I am currently a freshman studying Engineering and Management at Clarkson University. In addition to my studies, I am actively involved in the Ignite program, serving as an Ignite Presidential Fellow and Ice Team Lead for the 2022 president's challenge. I also dedicate my time to volunteering for CUEMS, a student-run ambulance service on campus. This website highlights my various projects and events I have worked on throughout the years.
Clarkson Presidents Challenge
Clarkson President Marc P. Christensen challenged the student body to design and construct a giant Rube Goldberg machine to shoot a hockey puck into a goal. I served as the Ice team lead, ensuring that the machine was inserted and removed from the ice in a safe and timely manner.
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
