Kyle is pursuing a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. Prior to MIT, he graduated from Rutgers University in 2020 with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. At Rutgers, he worked under Dr. Jonathan Singer on the rheology of thin-film polymers exhibiting glass-transition behavior via Focused Laser Spike (FLaSk) dewetting.
At MIT, Kyle is working on the Thermal Energy Grid Storage (TEGS) project, which aims to design and test a long-duration energy storage technology for the electricity grid. He is interested in heat transfer, energy storage, and electricity grid decarbonization.
