I recently made the bittersweet decision to leave my job at Google/Google[X]/Alphabet to start on a new adventure… Now, I’m building the future of power tools!
Yes, you read that title correctly. In one week I’m moving from New York to San Francisco to start a full-time job at Google [x], where I’ll be a hardware engineer working on Google Glass, an exciting new wearable tech product.
I’m done with academia, and I’m starting a new chapter in my life. In this first part of a two-part blog posting, I’d like to take some time to reflect on my experiences at Cornell over the last five years.
I recently completed an epic, once-in-a-lifetime cross-country bus trip from Ithaca, NY to San Francisco, CA. We stopped at six schools along the way to pick up other college students, and we led educational workshops for K-12 schools at each stop to teach students about various aspects of sustainability. The tour ended in San Francisco where I attended the GreenBuild Conference and Expo.
Cornell University Sustainable Design and the US Green Building Council have partnered up to organize a cross-country bus tour. The tour started at Cornell University and will end at the International GreenBuild Conference and Expo in San Francisco, California. Along the way, I, along with other CUSD members and college students from around the country will be teaching K-12 students about the importance of sustainable design.
I just got back from the 3rd annual Open Hardware Summit and World Maker Faire. It’s been a whirlwind week of robots, 3D Printers, inspiring talks, education, networking and more. I’m excited to share all the details!
This weekend, other members of Cornell University Sustainable Design and I, were invited to the USS Intrepid museum to teach kids about electricity using potato batteries, and molecular chemistry using gumdrop-and-toothpick models.
