Ron is a Boston native and second-time MIT student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. As an undergraduate, he studied materials science but later made the switch to mechanical engineering and product design. Upon graduation, he took a year off to travel the world and develop himself professionally through product design internships across the globe – including one in India which got him interested in product design for the developing world. Now back at MIT as a first year Tata Fellow, he hopes to utilize his engineering and design skills to catalyze development across rural India.
