Alyssa is a current student at the Rochester Institute of Technology where she is pursuing her PhD in mechanical engineering. She also received her BS/MS in mechanical engineering at RIT. While at RIT, she has had the opportunity to explore the wonderful world of thermal engineering and microelectronics cooling. Throughout her studies, Alyssa has learned how to incorporate sustainable ideals into something as simple as electronics cooling. She joined ESW her sophomore year but became more involved her junior year where she helped out with projects, learned about various renewable systems and became the best club secretary there ever was. In her very rare spare time, Alyssa enjoys knitting, baking cookies for her friends, playing with Legos and going on hikes in the ADKs (where she was raised).
Alyssa recently joined the Leadership Team as Events Coordinator (one of her other passions) and cannot be more excited to reserve rooms and delegate poster hang-ups (no this is not sarcasm, she actually enjoys these things)!
