From Olin to India
This portfolio is a compilation of experiences related to the Grand Challenges area of Engineering Better Medicines. I spent six months working in India for a startup called Embrace Innovations to develop low cost infant warmers to help save millions on babies’ lives in developing area. With my interdisciplinary background from Olin in entrepreneurship, user-centric design, and mechanical engineering, I was able to apply myself in a global context and learn about the problems in the world that engineers like me can tackle and solve. In this set of reflections, I recount a summary of my experiences over the past four years at Olin and abroad that have shaped who I am as a person and an engineer today. In the process, I have had experiences that align well with the Grand Challenges Scholars Program goals, which include a long-term project, service learning, global awareness, entrepreneurship, and interdisciplinary learning. I hope you enjoy learning about the experiences that have enriched the past four years of my life!
