Colin is an Electrical Engineering student from Youngstown, Ohio. He chose to attend Ohio University from three observations. First, he saw the alumni network is quite impressive; several were from his hometown. Second, the academic staff left him with a positive impression during his initial campus visit. Third is the numerous opportunities Russ College provides to its students.  

In addition to serving as an Engineering Ambassador, Colin was elected chapter president of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Colin also enjoys the Association of Computing and Machinery, the Cultural Italian American Association, and the Billiards Club. As a freshman, Colin was photographer for the Event Planners student organization.  

Over the summer, Colin interned as a technical analyst and specialist in Dayton, Ohio, with Integrated Solutions for Systems (IS4S), a DoD contractor. His projects included developing software to interact with data from GPS receivers and other sensors. 

Colin performs avionics research under Dr. Bartone on the FAA-funded Joint University Program. He writes software and scripts with various programming languages to integrate sensors, such as cameras with Linux-based devices.  

Colin also enjoys weight training, bonding with friends, and enjoying the moment.
