Quinn McHugh

Manufacturing Engineer, Community Organizer

Engineer. Designer. Developer. Passionate about sustainability, always on my bike.


* Logo design -- Does your EA group need a new or refined logo? I'd be happy to volunteer my skills. In the past, I've made logos & flyers for WANBAM, Effective Environmentalism, and EA Philadelphia --

* Volunteer for EA-related projects that are in need of those with technical expertise. Currently, I'm volunteering with the Food Systems Handbook on their database design team. I also have expertise in programming (Python, Java, C++, mainly), Excel/Google Apps Script, and mechanical design.

* Share EA-related resources -- I've begun to compile a wealth of EA-related resources on my Google Drive and Zotero library . If you're looking for anything in particular, I'd be happy to share what I've found.

* Discuss EA community building strategies with other EA organizers.

* Help students studying engineering or general STEM with their career plans.

Also happy to chat about non-EA-related things: I absolutely love bicycle touring, snowboarding, podcasts, or watching literally any nature documentary produced by BBC Earth. If you like any of these things, let's get in touch. :)

Looking for

1. I'd love to connect with others who are interested in discussing manufacturing and/or automation engineering from an EA perspective. e.g:
* What are some particularly pressing problems that mechanical, manufacturing, or automation engineers could help with?
* What are the challenges associated with ramping up alternative protein production? How can engineers help solve this this issue?
* How do we ensure a socially equitable future, given the current pace of manufacturing automation?

2. Discussing EA community building strategies with other EA organizers

3. Mentorship - If you happen to have any advice for an young professional engineer and prospective grad student, I'd love to chat.
