Early during my undergraduate studies, I started the McGill Robotics Mars Rover Team to share my desire to design planetary rovers to compete internationally. In just one year, the team grew from one member (myself) to more than 50 active students from different engineering and science backgrounds, becoming one of McGill University’s largest engineering design teams.

Over three years under my supervision, the team has designed, built and deployed three different planetary rovers in analogue test environments and finished third internationally for two years in a row.
