Hello, I'm Joe!

I research and engineer things...

I channel my curiosity within the intersection of science, technology, design, and engineering with the goal of interweaving seemingly unrelated perspectives to attain fascinating insights. I love contributing to the scientific community through research and strive to bridge the gap between research and its application in the real world.
