"I wanted to make an Iron Man suit. That’s probably why I got into engineering. I figured I couldn’t actually get bitten by a spider and shoot webs out of my wrists, I felt that was an option off the table, but Iron Man seemed like a feasible task.
Last summer, I was looking for research, and my professor described this project to me, and of course I only hear the word - laser. I was like, that’s my project. I’m going to shoot lasers at things. I spent a fair amount of the summer taking apart coffee beans and firing lasers at them, in hopes to identify by the atomic and molecular makeup where in the world it was grown. NASA had agreed to fund it because it had the potential of being used on the Mars Rover to analyze rocks.”
