I grew up on a small farm in Midwest Ohio. I entered into EE because I already had a pretty strong mechanical background and wanted to expand and learn more. I discovered EW and specifically radar through the MUMMA Radar Lab at the University of Dayton and throughout my time there I was amazed about all of the ways that EW and all of the partitions and systems within affect everyone's daily life. I have gotten the chance to dig deep into tomography including X-Band for fine details and UHF for ground penetration. I am currently working on a direction finding system which is really cool in how it utilizes the same basic principles as coherent imaging tomography but to perform a completely different task. I will graduate with a Bachelors in May, so I have not been introduced to many of the systems within the field of EW. As of now, my passion is in discovering the many systems of EW and to try to understand them to the degree that I can choose one to pursue further through my Masters and Doctorates. I believe being apart of the Network and Mentoring Program, I will have the chance to expand beyond my current experiences through interaction with a mentor that has gained experience in the field. I look forward to hearing about different experiences, stories, and suggestions that the Mentors have to offer.
