Nicole C. K. M. L. Baptist

aka BaptistBot

Just your garden-variety nerd that fell in love with cartoons and math. (And read way too much Asimov.)

As young robotics engineer, I enjoy working on projects that enhance my understanding in a broad spectrum of topics. The the desire to understand, utilize, and maintain new technologies is what drives me as an engineer. Although my more visual-oriented learning style is best expressed through design and analysis, I have developed software in various languages and am not afraid to dabble in the more abstract! From humorous animated anecdotes to tv show-inspired roombas, I find the most reward in projects with the power to make people smile :)
