Hi there! My name is Natasha, and I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where I double majored in Mechanical Engineering and [Urban] Planning. I'll be heading back to MIT in Fall 2023 for my MS+PhD in Mechanical Engineering. Right now I'm in the Netherlands as a Fulbright Scholar in the Building Physics unit at TU Eindhoven researching energy-efficient buildings. As a born and raised New Yorker, I am focused on improving the resilience of cities in the face of climate change-induced hazards to protect at-risk communities like my home. I use my skills in engineering and planning paired with my enthusiasm for problem-solving to contribute to sustainable development on Earth and beyond. I find impact by engaging in projects, conducting research, and discussing ideas. Some of my favorite experiences have been prototyping a communications tower for the Moon, designing a greenhouse for Mars, and researching heat mitigation strategies for New York City. For fun, I cook, tinker, and play soccer. Enjoy my website!
