About Me

Hi, I'm Charlotte. I'm currently pursuing a B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Olin College of Engineering, a small and unique institution in Massachusetts.

Outside of my classes, I do satellite research with the Olin Satellite and Spectrum Technology and Policy (OSSTP) group with the vision of creating a safe and sustainable space environment for generations to come. I was project lead for an antenna control unit and am a part of the team developing equivalent power-flux density (EPFD) software. I am also an Academic Resource Co-Designer and course assistant for the Software Design class at Olin. In the past, I've also worked as an Electrical Engineering Intern for SENER Aerospace as well as a Web Developer and photographer at Kyaro Assistive Tech.

In my free time, I can be found taking photos, getting lost in my favourite book, or practicing with the Olin Fire Arts Club.

Portable OCR to Tactile Braille Display


Dispraille is a module that uses optical character recognition (OCR) software to detect text around its user and convert it to braille using a 6-pin tactile interface. By placing a finger on the 3x2 matrix on the top of Dispraille, deafblind users can choose to read the text around them through a quick letter-by-letter run-through. We built this for the 2023 MakeHarvard make-a-thon, and for extra challenge, we chose to limit pourselves in making this project with only the materials that MakeHarvard provided. This qualified us to enter in the MakeHarvard Original category, for which we won the top prize.

I worked mainly on the software side of the project, creating the Arduino firmware and collaborating with my teammate on programming the OCR software. I also worked on the electrical design and manufacturing of the physical mechanism.

Coffee Making Robot


BaristaBot is a machine with integrated mechanical, electrical, and software components with the goal of making and showing the process of making coffee. This was a 6-week project for my Principles of Integrated Engineering class, where I took a lead role in project management, electrical design and power management, as well as website development.

Our machine used a three-tiered rotational design where the user would place the cup on the bottom tier and a servo-powered platform would rotate it through four stations: creamer dispensing, sugar dispensing, and coffee dispensing. In between the sugar and coffee dispensing stations, water was brought to a boil through an induction coil and passed through a filter where the Bot has dispensed coffee grounds. The user can choose if they want creamer and sugar through a touch-screen user interface that activates and deactivates the dispensing.

Frog-themed Platformer Game


Platfrogs is a classic vertical platformer game where the main character is a frog whose main goal is to soar to the skies. The aim of this project was to create a frog-themed vertical platformer game using the model-view-controller method of game design.

My partner and I decided to do this type of project because platformers are very nostalgic and familiar to us, and we wanted to look further into how one was programmed. Furthermore, we both think frogs are quite cute and since they're known for hopping, we thought they would be the perfect protagonists. We also wanted to gain some familiarity with the PyGame library, and we knew that creating a platfromer game would be a great way to explore its features.
