Our Board

President

Jamie Caines '21
Bioengineering

I am a junior studying Bioengineering, S.B. with an electrical subtrack. I'm from Boston and grew up dancing, which I've been able to continue at college. Entrepreneurship and innovation, particularly in biotechnology, is super interesting to me, and I hope to start my own venture at some point. In the meantime, I try to stay current on all the awesome things people are doing with medical imaging and machine learning!

I enjoy traveling the world and in my free time you can find me either dancing or hand lettering!

Publicity Chair

Danielle Davis '21
Electrical Engineering & Music

Hi! I am a junior from Long Island, New York pursuing a joint study of Electrical Engineering and Music. When I am not working on a problem set or debugging a circuit in lab, I am performing as a cellist with groups across campus or at the New England Conservatory. Some of my favorite things include baking with my friends, fostering faux succulents, and making cold brew coffee.

President Emeritus

Andrea Rodriguez-Marin Freudmann '20
Mechanical Engineering

I am from originally from Toronto, Canada, but I have made Boston (and Harvard!) my new home. I love mechanical engineering and I want more women and minorities to realize how much potential they have in the field. After graduation I want to go to do research, ideally in an interdisciplinary field where I can apply engineering skills to a larger scientific project. I fell in love with the mechie life despite having no experience with it pre-college, and I think more people should try it out!​
