I was very impressed with David during the time we had to work together. David was not only one of the inventors of the base technology of his research, he took the idea from conception and completed significant enough analysis to warrant publication. He was very proactive and independent in designing his experiments and overcoming challenges.

My experience is that it is rare to find an undergrad that is capable of navigating several complex processes and efficiently getting things done. I would jump at the chance to work with David again!

I invented the hardware and some of the software for a laser tag gun that interfaces with your smartphone. Click here to read more.

David is an innovative problem solver with a can-do attitude. He brings a creative and yet methodical approach to bear on the task at hand, learns what he needs to know in order to tackle it, and then works through it with both rapidity and thoroughness. He combines simulation and software skill with critical thinking, and is equally comfortable either writing code or building lab setups. He is a solidly excellent all-round asset to any R&D team.
