Hello! My name is Jennifer and I'm excited to be joining Adams House this year.  As a PhD candidate in Materials Science & Mechanical Engineering, I'm working on exploring the design of tiny bio-inspired robots as part of the Harvard Microrobotics Lab. I'm originally from central MA and received my BS from Northeastern University, during which time I interned/ "co-op" worked at a variety of companies (iRobot, Hologic, Regeneron, JPL) and gained a sense for engineering in industry settings. Outside of my studies, I enjoy baking sweet treats, designing graphics, publishing random fun projects, enjoying the sunshine, and interacting with the broader Cambridge community through my church. Always up to discuss any questions, thoughts, ponderings about life or just good places to eat - looking forward to meeting you, getting to know the vibrant Adams community and navigating an exciting year ahead!
