My name is Kevin Coulson. I'm from South Orange County, CA and currently a 3rd-year Mechanical Engineering major and Materials Science minor student at UC Berkeley. My main academic and professional interests revolve around 3D-Printing. I've done additive manufacturing research in the Laboratory for Manufacturing and Sustainability and am currently a lead undergraduate researcher for a group in the
Design for Nanomanufacturing Lab at UCB. I've also spent two summers interning for California 3D printing companies - Airwolf3D, a high-end FDM printer manufacturer, and polySpectra, an innovative 3D printing materials company. I am constantly looking for opportunities to expand my experience within the 3D printing industry.
Outside of classes, my hobbies mostly involve getting outdoors. I'm an avid backpacker - logging several hundred miles of hiking in the Southwestern United States, including several 2-week treks in New Mexico. I've also spent a decent amount of my winter seasons skiing, particularly in the last two years, in Mammoth, Alta, Snowbird, Park City, and other resorts in California and Utah. In the last year, I have also picked up windsurfing, going to the Berkeley Marina several days a week during the summer.
I'm also a passionate musician. I've been playing piano for 15 years - I've played my fair share of classical piano (my favorite is Chopin) but have also played in a garage band, and a Monterey Jazz Festival qualifying Jazz band. I am also a self-taught guitarist, playing a lot more since becoming a college student.
Additionally, I've been involved in several student organizations at UC Berkeley - a fraternity (ΘΔΧ), the drone club UAVs@Berkeley, and the 3D Modeling Club. Lastly, I'm interested in integrating sustainability into aspects of community, business, and everyday living.
This site features some of the projects that I've worked on through internships, research and more. I will periodically update the site as I continue to work on current projects and begin work on others.
