I have had a vivid interest in robotics since an early age. For the most part I had an interest in the SciFi aspect but as I grew up, I discovered that robotics and controls do in fact play a vital role in industry. With this in mind I decided to pursue EE as it shares such a close relationship with advances in physics (particularly quantum and solid state) yet still provides oportunities to work with cool systems level things.
My life long interest in science and technology has led me to my current position doing thesis research at the ASL. ASL is a partnership between the UC and Nasa which allows UC scholars to do research into nanoscience, space exploration, communication systems, etc.
I certainly hope that with all the great things happening at ASL, 2010 will be my best year yet.

My Skills

Math,Physics. Writing tutor

Category: Education
I can provide tutoring services for math and physics as well as for technical/non technical writing( though I prefer to be involved with the technical writing aspect of your project)
I received a 99% score on my CAHEE so I can definitly help any high school students looking to pass the exam. In fact, I specifically would like to work with high school and community college students needing help to pass final exams or other critical exams. ( please consult my Craigslist add for more information "Highschool math physics and CASHEE math and writing tutor ")
Relevant Education / Credentials
* Student tutor for Learning Support Services at the University of California *Cal Teach mentorhip program participant * As a student tutor, I tutored engineering math * Experience in applying what I tutor
Years Experience: 3

Electrical Engineering

Category: Engineering
I offer the ability to do cheap analog/digital repair for any vintage/new product with an expired warranty.
I am a student who hopes to go on to graduate school however I would appreciate any tech related oportunities that might finance additional schooling. As far as EE is concerned, I wish to specialize in control systems particularly robotics. I still have an interest in nanotechnology however and so I am serching for new synergetic fields which combine my interests(nano robots someday maybe?)
