He loves playing with dogs and walks in the city (and the beach)… with dogs.
Matthew is a 2nd-semester electrical and computer engineering master’s student from Cary, NC focusing in VLSI, IC fabrication, and computer architecture. As the batteries and BMS subteam lead, he’s responsible for safely and reliably storing up to 4.74kWh of energy. When he’s not working on solar, he enjoys running, biking, trains, hard sci-fi (such as The Expanse), and following spaceflight.
Noah Dorfman is a fourth year Electrical Engineering student at Georgia Tech with a background in computer science. He loves building things and solving problems, and listens almost exclusively to classic rock. As Powertrain lead for GTSR, he is responsible for turning all that solar power into sweet forward motion.
Gabe is a second-year materials science and engineering student from the Lone-Star State of Dallas, Texas. His responsibilities as Solar-Subteam Lead include overseeing subteam member projects, collaborating with aerobody for the development of SR-4’s array, and any project related to the improvement of the solar array and MPPT’s. Any accusations of a skunk-works project in the works related to quantum-dots are to be deemed “false”.
Elizabeth Liu is a first-year computer science major and the telemetry subteam lead. She’s responsible for maintaining the car’s telemetry board and server that store and visualize SR-3’s data. Outside of GTSR, she’s interested in art and video game design.
Brian is a second-year mechanical engineering student from Gaithersburg, Maryland. He’s in charge of the car’s mechanical wellbeing and performs percussive maintenance as necessary. In addition to GTSR, he also plays badminton and board games.
Kat Schuetz | Former Design Lead
Kat Schuetz is a third-year Computer Engineering student with a minor in Industrial Design from Kennett Square, PA. She is in charge of making sure engineering designs are ergonomic and practical for the Multi-Occupant Vehicle. Outside of GTSR, Kat enjoys artistic activities and playing with her dog.
Aidan Labrozzi | Former Frame Lead
Aidan is a second-year Environmental Engineering Major from North Carolina. His duties as Frame Lead include managing FEA for SR3’s frame to ensure it’s up to regulation as well as helping out with the development of the future frame for the MOV. His other interests are mathematics, fencing, and LEGOs.
Jack Travnik | Former Steering and Brakes Lead
Jack is a second-year Mechanical Engineering major from Oak Lawn, IL. He is responsible for the creation and maintenance of the steering and braking systems. Besides GTSR, he is also a part of the GT Rowing Club.
Jonathan Kagoo | Former Suspension Lead
