Michael Buchman - Post-doctoral Researcher

Research Interests

Michael Buchman grew up in sunny California and decided to forsake the warm weather to do his undergraduate studies in mechanical engineering at MIT. He liked it enough to sign up for another five years and is currently a third year graduate student in the mechanical engineering department at MIT. He works under the guidance of Professor Amos Winter in the Global Engineering and Research Laboratory. The focus of his research is agricultural engine design, with a focus on improving power output, efficiency, and fuel economy.
