About           Research           Projects           Other  

Hi, I'm Emily. I'm a graduate student at Boston University. I work under Prof. Thomas D.C. Little in the Multimedia Communications Lab (MCL) and the Center for Lighting Enabled Systems & Applications (LESA). My research projects fall under the realm of Visible Light Communications.

Current interests outside of research include painting, climbing, biking, and hiking -- aka avoiding screens. I also enjoy designing, tinkering, and making stuff. I'm super passionate about what exists in the space between technlogy and art!

Formal Education from:
Boston University; PhD (201-), MS (2016), and BS (2014) in Electrical Engineering

Previous Work Experience from:
IDEO, Applied Electromagnetics Lab, and Design Camp

I'm a firm believer in giving back, especially to a community that has nourished and nurtured you, which really stems from my time at Design Camp, both as a camper, when I was a young budding engineer, and as an instructor, during my late teenage years. I'm also an avid supporter of STEAM. Currently, I'm a teaching assistant for an internet of things (IoT) course at BU and a mentor to female undergraduate students in science and engineering. During the summers, I teach and assist in workshops designed to expose young students to engineering. In the past, I've tutored for Upward Bound as well as advised undergraduate engineering students at BU.
