Aller, Henry

Henry Aller.JPG

Currently, Henry is senior in the Mechanical Engineering department at the University of Washington-Seattle working towards his Bachelors of Science, with an option in Mechatronics and Control Systems. Following graduation, he will attend graduate school at Carnegie-Mellon University in the Mechanical Engineering department, researching the nanoscale thermal conductivity properties of thin film materials, under the advisory of Professor Jonathon Malen.

His future goal is to finish a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, and pursue a tenure-track faculty position at a university as a life-long research position. In the past, his research experience has been focused in nanostructured acoustic metamaterials, computational neuroscience, and melodic extraction algorithms.

Henry was born on May 24, 1993 in Highland Park, Illinois. Due to his parents being strongly academically focused, his family has been forced to move several times during his life. By the time he was 18 years old, he had lived in six different cities. With every member of his family involved in the medical field, with his parents working as pediatric and adult oncologists, and his sister in medical school, engineering has felt unique and fascinating to him since he was young.
