Hi! My name is Samuel and I am an electrical and computer engineering major from Palo Alto, California. I am a member of the mix subteam of Cornell’s Concrete Canoe project team, meaning I work on developing and testing different concrete designs for a new concrete boat that is built every year. As a huge chocolate fan I always get the Chocolate Gorges flavored ice cream wherever I can find it. While I’m on campus I enjoy participating in intramural sports as it gives me a chance to reignite the joy of sports I had played and loved as a kid.

AguaClara is a project team with the goal of designing sustainable water treatment facilities, and I joined the spring of my freshman year. This past January, I was lucky to be able to visit Honduras with part of the team to see the water treatment plants built by AguaClara over the past fifteen or so years.
Meredith is a civil engineering major with a focus in structural design. She is minoring in engineering management and will be working for Clark Construction as an enginer after graduation. Meredith served as Social Chair and later President of Cornell’s branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and served as one of the design leads of Cornell’s Steel Bridge team.

Stephie is a biomedical engineering major (BME) on a pre-MD/PhD track. She is very involved on campus, both in engineering and outside of engineering. Within engineering, she is an undergraduate researcher in the Fischbach Lab, where she models breast cancer spreading to bone, the President of Engineers for a Sustainable World project team, a board member of Tau Beta Pi, and a tutor for freshmen and sophomore engineering courses. Outside of engineering, she is a member of Rise Dance Group and a Leadership Assistant with PCAT, a local patient-oriented hospital volunteering program. Stephie is from West Bloomfield, Michigan, and her favorite spot on campus is Beebe Lake for its lovely running trail!
It’s strange, and very reassuring, to think that even in these incredibly demanding, disruptive, and unprecedented times, we are still thinking about the future. We are doing it here at the College of Engineering, and we know you are planning for the future at home with your families.
