Hi, I'm Adnan!

I'm a Robotics Master's student at the University of Pennsylvania. I also recently completed my Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering at UPenn, where I minored in Engineering Entrepreneurship. I am passionate about the process of taking innovative ideas from design sketches to reality. I enjoy the juncture between mechanical and electrical design, and want to take these skills into designing robots in industry. Outside of my academic life, I am a member of Penn Electric Racing, a student-run club that builds electric race cars for competition.

When I'm not in a lab, I enjoy powerlifting, playing guitar and drawing. My time in Mechatronics has left me a lot more interested in guitar electronics, and I am planning on designing and making a guitar distortion pedal sometime in the next few months.


I'm the co-president Penn Barbell Club, an organization of weightlifters and powerlifters that train in the pursuit of a fitter lifestyle. I am also a lifelong comic book fan, and love exploring the storytelling capabilities of the graphic novel medium.
