Rebecca Terosky
President
Contact: rlt5219@psu.edu

About me: I am a senior majoring in Engineering Science with minors in Mathematics and Engineering Mechanics.  I served as the secretary for SES my freshman and sophomore years, and was also a Rube Goldberg Project Co-Chair my freshman year.  My undergraduate research focuses on using mathematical abstractions to develop probabilistic methods of representing human cognition in order to design robots to “think” more like humans, building on current neural network structures.  I am also the current president of L.I.F.E. House, a Teaching Assistant for ENGR 310: Entrepreneurial Leadership, the incoming director of the Order of Knowlton’s Rangers, and a member of Catholic Campus Ministry.  Outside of school, I enjoy biking and helping to fix bikes and other small vehicles.

About me:  I am a senior majoring in Engineering Science. I work for Penn State ARL doing research on Additive Manufacturing with Metals which will likely be related to my thesis topic. I am also involved in The Roar Zone, DASH, ELS, and The Hi11.

Mike Jadwin
Treasurer

About me: I am a senior also majoring in Engineering Science and plan to continue being the SES treasurer for my senior year. My main interests are in sustainable and clean energy sources, and I hope to one day help the world transition from fossil fuels to a “greener” way of life. Currently, I am beginning my senior thesis research at the hybrid hydrogen electric vehicle lab on campus and am looking into the benefits of integrating a super-capacitor with a traditional battery pack in an electric vehicle. I also enjoy staying active and experiencing the outdoors.

About me: I am a senior majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science. I am particularly interested in biology/biomedical engineering and hope to work in the pharmaceutical or biologics industry post-grad. I am currently working on my thesis in a biomedical engineering lab where I will be focusing on the mechanical properties of kinesin and microtubules. Outside of school I like to play sports and hike.

 

Chris Stutzman
Secretary

Contact: cbs5220@psu.edu

About me: I am currently a senior in Engineering Science with a minor in Engineering Mechanics. I currently work as an undergraduate researcher at CIMP-3D where I study in-situ defect detection during additive manufacturing of metals. As a sophomore and junior, I worked at Penn State as a tutor for math, physics, and chemistry. In addition, I was part of a newly developed science mentoring program at Penn State Worthington Scranton. I am currently a member of Tau Beta Pi, as well as the Schreyer Honors college. After graduation, I plan to continue on to graduate school. Outside of school, I enjoy riding and rebuilding bikes, as well as working on cars.
