Engineering Physics

Expected Graduation: May 2022


I am an engineering major from Kigali, Rwanda. I have always been fascinated by how the world of medicine and technology are connected. That is why I aspire to be a Biomedical engineer. I came to the United States to get as much exposure as I can to the field, so I can implement the things I am learning to find solutions for some of the problems people come across back home.

Contribution to NEXT

I am currently working with Dr. Head and Tim Doty on the assembly of the second molten salt containment system we are building. I also update some CAD drawings for the team.

What you like about NEXT?

I like NEXT because it is my first real experience applying the things I learnt in school to real world problems. I think it is going to help me have a smoother transition to the career path I plan to take.
