ENGINEERING WITH DONALD
Sustainability is one of the biggest challenges facing my generation. I hope that through my Civil Engineering studies at Georgia Tech and eventual career I will become an expert in water resources and sustainability. Through science, engineering, influencing policy, and inspiring people, I want to help develop mutually beneficial practices that farmers, cities, and rural communities can implement because we all live downriver from someone. To date I’ve been able to contribute to research projects on water in Nepal, intern at a Civil Engineering firm, and help research the net-zero Kendeda building on Georgia Tech’s campus!
I also host a podcast, “Becoming an Engineer,” with my older brother Mark. He graduated from Purdue University with three undergraduate degrees (biological engineering, biochemistry, and agronomy) and is now pursuing his graduate studies. On the show we interview engineers doing amazing work ranging from growing food out of wastewater, to working on NASA projects, to building SMART Cities. The show is hosted on my YouTube channel, Engineering with Donald. On the channel there are also vlogs of internships, travel, and conferences that we partake in relating to engineering.
