Master of Science in Engineering  (M.S.E.)

Cum laude

NSF i-Corps program
Jan 2013 - Jan 2013
Identified a novel funding opportunity and assembled a team of three experts (a previously funded NSF investigator, an industry mentor and myself as the entrepreneurial lead). We competed for and won the first NSF i-Corps grant in the state of Delaware. Furthermore, we democratized access to the program by persuading the NSF to recognize pre-doctoral funding as meeting the minimum legacy funding requirements. This decision by NSF Administrators at our request, opened the door for thousands of pre-doctoral (graduate students) to qualify for up to $50,000 in federally sponsored commercialization research at a very early stage in their research careers.
