Sam Reed graduated from the University of New Hampshire in May of 2015 with his Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering. During his time as an undergrad, he was a member of UNH’s Division 1 Nordic Ski Team, was the Co-leader of the controls group of his senior project, and had three summers of internship experience. He spent two summers at the Timken Company working on an electro-mechanical testing device and one summer at NASA’s Marshall Space and Flight Center where he worked on a wireless motor controller for ground testing for two upcoming satellites. His senior project consisted of building an autonomous quadcopter in support of NASA’s Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission. For his Master’s research, Sam will be working with Val Schmidt on the controls of an Autonomous Surface Vehicle for ocean floor mapping.
