GennFlex is excited to introduce this awesome group of engineering interns that chose us to work on the robotics and automation training projects this summer!
Over the course of this summer, these interns will be trained to program production-grade robots made by Yaskawa and will be playing a leading role in developing engaging robotics training labs and fun gaming applications.
Make sure to follow us to stay up to date on their exciting journey with GennFlex.
Meet the team
My interest for science and engineering has been with me ever since I was a child. I went to a science fair during my junior year of high school, and that experience solidified my choice that I wanted to get into a STEM field in college. I currently attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I am studying mechanical engineering with a minor in aerospace engineering. My interests reach out to many different fields, which include materials science, nanotechnology, and robotics.
I am a junior at Marquette University studying computer engineering. I have always loved the STEM fields growing up as I seemed to excel in any math and science assignments. My true calling to pursue a software focused computer engineering degree started when I would play Minecraft growing up. I loved the efficiency of modifying your game through the simple code. Once I began college I decided to pursue a Computer engineering degree in which I made one of the best decisions of my life.

Ever since I was little, science and innovation have been my infatuation. I still recall binge watching the Discovery channel and tuning in to Ancient Aliens on the History network. It was this yearning for exploration that peaked my interest in becoming an engineer. This passion followed me through my time at Illinois Institute of Technology and even motivated me to pick up a few computer languages along my engineering path. This blend of technology, machinery and creativity is what led me to apply for this robotics internship.
Coming from a small rural town in Mexico to a big city like Chicago really changed my perspective on how things work. I started to see more cars and big buildings that inspire my interest in how they work and get built. Doing research of my own and coming across the topic of engineering I got more interested in this to the point that I applied and got accepted to the UIUC into its engineering program. Ever since then my curiosity for robotics has increased and I take part in different robotics clubs at the UIUC.
I am in my last year for my Masters in Computer Science student from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, BioRobotics lab. I got my Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering from Universidad the Los Andes, Colombia while working in circuits, electromagnetics, robotics and industrial automation. I excell in programming using C++ , Python, Matlab, and designing in CAD. My previous projects include developing mobile robots using the Robot Operating System Platform and developing a mobile robots course for UW-Milwaukee.
I am studying mechanical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In my time at Illinois, I have had the opportunity to get involved in the robotics club and learn about controls systems, programming, and mechanism design through coursework. However, due to the pandemic, I have had limited hands-on experience in these areas. Therefore, I am very excited to get the chance to work directly with industrial robotics through this position with GennFlex as well as work with fellow interns.
I am a senior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign studying Mechanical Engineering. I love to play competitive table tennis and video games. Throughout my college life I have been dipping my feet in many different aspects of engineering, and recently I started getting into robotics. I plan on sticking with robotics and pursuing it as a potential career path.
I have retained an interest in technology since my early years. However, my enduring interest in robotics began upon my participation in my high school VEX Robotics team. The ever-changing environment in which I found myself, the use of machines to perform novel tasks, and the collaborative nature of building and testing robots paved the avenue toward my internship at GennFlex. Currently, my educational ambitions lie in continuing my education through either a master’s or doctorate degree in Robotics, Cybernetics, and A.I.
