Carolyn Estrada is a first year graduate student in mechanical engineering. She received her bachelor's degree from Texas A&M University in May 2012. As an undergraduate, she researched control systems in refrigeration systems and in automatic landing systems of unmanned aerial vehicles. Carolyn is a recipient of the 2012 NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) scholarship.
One of Carolyn's first projects in design was to design a wind driven power generator; this was done while studying abroad in the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Spain. Another design project she worked on was designing a testing tank for oilfield sub-sea systems, which was a joint effort between students from Texas A&M and Texas A&M-Qatar, in Doha. Carolyn also spent a summer as an intern at Schlumberger in their new product development division. Currently, Carolyn is working on a design team that aims to improve the German grocery shopping experience.
Carolyn is working on her pilot's license and enjoys flying around the bay area in her free time. She also is a devout follower of college and professional football. She enjoys playing guitar and playing racquetball.
