Shashank Agarwal
Shashank Agarwal

I am a 5th year Ph.D. student in the department of Mechanical engineering at MIT. I work in the versatile field of solid mechanics. Specifically, I use various computational approaches for understanding the underlying physics of complex granular intrusions. As, a part of my doctoral studies, I aim to develop real-time granular intrusion modeling methods for applications such as locomotion in dry sands. Besides engineering, I am also keen on understanding the interplay of scientific advancements with the law and public policies. In this regard, I am pursuing a minor in Science Technology, and Policy. In the past, I have worked as a Scientist at the Defence Research and Development Organization, India, where I worked on developing long-range border surveillance systems for the Indian Army. I am looking for full-time opportunities starting Fall 2021 in allied mechanical engineering fields where I can make significant scientific contributions.

Addressing people-centric problems often hinges on changing how people think and act. I approach that challenge both through making tangible things and through translating big, seemingly intangible problem statements into technical requirements. Going forward, I’m looking for new ways to apply my systems-level, user-centric thinking and my design and manufacturing skills to problems at the intersection of societal behavior and natural resources, such as sustainable agriculture and material waste reduction.

Álvaro Fernández Galiana

I am a Mechanical Engineering PhD candidate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, expecting graduation next Spring. I am a research assistant at the LIGO Laboratory, where my research is focused on the development of high precision field-deployable opto-mechanical instruments. Having worked on a variety of projects, from miniature satellites and quantum metrology to machine leaning applied to spectroscopy, I have gathered experience in the design, prototyping and implementation of these instruments. My believe is that society would greatly benefit from low-cost high-precision systems that can be used in a variety of fields, from agriculture to healthcare, and my goal is to keep developing these systems after graduation.

Chloe Nelson-Arzuaga

Junior at Massachusetts Institute of Technology double majoring in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in robotics and Art and Design with a 4.6 GPA. I am also part of the NEET Autonomous Machine Thread where we focus on an interdisciplinary approach to applying autonomy algorithms to real-world robots. The link to the program's page as well as my personal portfolio while at MIT are linked bellow. Planning to use these two majors to approach product design from both the functional and structural side of MechE and the artistic and more aesthetic side of Architectural Design. Long-time interest in design and making including using SolidWorks since my Junior year of High School (4 years ago). I was CAD lead of my First Robotics team where we manufactured everything in house so I also learned how to use the mill, lathe, Shopbot, 3D printer and laser cutter. In addition to Robotics, I did many fun projects through my last two years of high school including making a quadcopter with custom 3D printed propellers and laser cut base. At MIT I have learned to use AutoCAD and Python. I have enjoyed the flexibility in making and learning to use different processes such as casting and enameling. I have learned how to work on research teams in the Media Lab's Tangible Media and Center for Bits and Atoms groups and am a co-author on a paper to be published February of 2020.
