Dominic recently graduated with honours from Princeton University with a major in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and minors in Robotics and Energy.

Of all the cool projects he's worked on in college, his favorite by far was his senior thesis. He worked with 2 classmates to design, build, and test a fully-functional magnetic levitation hoverboard from scratch! He plans to pursue a PhD in combustion and energy systems, hopefully on the west coast because he does not like the cold.

Outside all the chaos of engineering, Dominic really enjoys traveling (fun fact: he went scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef during his semester abroad), contemporary dance, photography, and painting.

Dominic is excited to be an essay reader because he wants to help students find their voices, tell their awesome stories confidently, and show why they would be incredible additions to the colleges of their dreams!
