firefighter grant


As a Master of Design student at UC, I worked on a project funded by the largest grant ever assigned to DAAP, focusing on enhancing the safety and effectiveness of firefighter suits. This experience let me practice in the space between design and engineering.

While specific project details are confidential due to an NDA, invention disclosures are in progress, allowing me to share more in the future. My roles center around being a liaison between engineering and design, including industrial and mechanical design, data analysis, sewing industrial samples, working with advanced materials, and developing composites. The team achieved additional funding for a second year, and I am continuing this work up until my graduation.

I am listed as the primary inventor of the cooling apparatus shown below on UC's patent application draft.
