Gian's Online Portfolio

Designer | Mechanical Engineer | Data Scientist

I’ve created this page for people to explore the different types of things that I have done over the last couple of years.


The professional years that I have dedicated while building my career. These include full time positions, part time positions and internships.


From marketing tools to database architectures and machine learning, see what certifications I have earned.


I love exploring, and research has allowed me to test theory. From aerodynamics to acoustics, you can learn about my research experience.

Volunteer Work

I love helping build communities, see how I volunteer my time and effort to causes that I believe can change society.


Projects take up most of my time, and that’s because I always have a new idea to test. This is what I am most passionate about.


I love cars, games, and reading, and more hobbies than I can think of at the moment. I want to see if we have any in common.

I hope you enjoy! Scroll through this main page to get a summary, or click on the menu to learn more.

Featured Project

Goddard Robotics’ Rover – A level 2 autonomous robot.

Rover was our attempt at designing an autonomous robot. We – a team of engineers – signed up for a DHL Robotics Competitions to build a robot that would carry all the packages for the delivery experts. After gaining some crowdfunding support we decided to build the robot. Here is a video of that project.
