Colin Szechy

Colin is an undergraduate in the Computer Engineering program, focusing on embedded systems and software. After a high school FIRST Robotics experience, Colin has moved on to tinkering with projects from automotive embedded systems to Android apps, PCB design, and attending hackathons. Colin is active in the Michigan Hackers and MHacks organizaitons, and teaches our weekly lessons.

Ben Kempke

Ben is a PhD student with experience in designing next-generation wireless and embedded systems. Ben is currently working on developing systems which enable the precise tracking of indoor radio sources. He also has interests in space-based applications, with flight hardware and software currently operating on-orbit.

Meghan Clark

Meghan Clark is a PhD student working to improve automated interactions with the built environment. Her strengths lie in designing and implementing learning algorithms and reactive controls for distributed sensor-actuator systems. She recently spun her first PCB, and loves to solder. Meghan also has a good deal of fabrication experience, particularly involving 3D printing and machining.

Branden Ghena

Branden is a PhD student working on embedded systems. He has worked on computer systems for a small satellite for four years and was an instructor for EECS 370. Branden is excited by low-level systems designs and interfaces, and is happiest while debugging code with an oscilloscope. He has experience in hardware from FPGAs to PCBs and in software from Operating Systems to hand-written assembly.
