Hi! I'm Ava Chen, a mechanical engineering PhD student at Columbia University. This blog is about me having a bunch of fun exploring new techniques and making silly things...and documenting them here.

I started this blog the winter of my undergraduate freshman year  to start recording various personal projects. Generally this includes everything not directly related to my research, although sometimes day jobs and side projects overlap.
