Kevin Kang

Degree Sought : Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering
Research Focus:

School Name : Kennedy-Longfellow School, Cambridge
Teaching Partner: William McDonald
Kevin's Project GLACIER Site

Kevin is a graduate student in Mechanical Engineering at BU. He studies biological physics with Dr. Matthias Schneider specifically on understanding mechanism of cell signaling using fundamental principles of thermodynamics.

He is working with Mr. William McDonald at the Kennedy-Longfellow School in Cambridge to teach 8th grade science. His goal is to help students understand and value the engineering design process by introducing projects related to climate change. Notably, he aims to guide students in designing and implementing Brushbots to study how climate change can influence insect behavior.
