Hi! I'm Liani. I'm a robotics engineering senior at Olin College just outside Boston, and I am the multitool that holds teams and projects together.

I enjoy forging new paths in unfamiliar territory, and this past year has been a series of "firsts":
- First co-op at Ivani, a St. Louis startup. My software work has
  resulted in a provisional patent application.
- Launched Foundry Idea Testing (FIT), Olin's first ever winter-
  session program - and a student-run one to boot.
- First operations hire at Tagup, a Greentown Labs startup.

Within robotics, my field of study, I've learned the joys of ROS (Robot Operating System), co-opting modified Neatos to create swarms (Project Polygon) and autonomous cars (Project Caribou). Outside class, in my freshman and sophomore years, I could be found performing composite layups, characterizing sensors, or developing system architecture, all with the aim of building a sailboat to autonomously traverse the Atlantic Ocean.

Outside engineering, I draw comics to express information with visually compelling narratives, and I spent time at Babson's social innovation lab, The Lewis Institute.

Interest piqued? Drop me a line.
