In the UWM engineering and mathematical sciences building, he is part of a team of Uinversity Innovation Fellows that is working on a project to renovate a room that is not accessible to all students. The room is located next to the recently renovated makerspace and will serve as a space for group activities, club meetings, a classroom and a relaxing study area.
