Ethaniel D. Moore
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Nothing ignites Ethan’s passion more than using robots to restore and protect the environment. As a mechanical engineering major at University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, Ethan conducts research developing environmental monitoring robots and machine learning algorithms for them to navigate and forecast hazards. Ethan has diffused his values throughout his community by establishing an automated gardening project, a litter cleanup initiative, and a free and accessible robotics outreach program for disadvantaged students. Any time he is not progressing these initiatives, Ethan is appreciating the environment he works to preserve while camping with his fiancé and two huskies.
