Battery Protection Co-Lead

I am currently the Co-Battery Protection Lead along with Carissa Lo on the Solar Car Team. My role is to make sure the battery is managed properly to ensure maximum efficiency. The reason why I joined Solar Car initially was to gain more hands on experience with electrical engineering. Over the many months I've worked on this project, I have met so many hardworking people and have gained so much experience. This team has definitely been one of the highlights of my college career.  I am looking forward to competing at the Formula Sun Grand Prix in the Summer.
