Hi, I'm Jesse
My name is Jesse Wallace, and I am a maker, engineer, and adventurer. I love creative invention, textile art, backpacking, and animals (Especially my dogs, Daisy, Teddy, and Gracie). I am also passionate about service - I have spent time teaching children English in the Dominican Republic and volunteering at Hilltop Horizons, a center for equine-based cognitive and physical therapy for children and adults with physical, social, and/or emotional challenges. I care about giving back and making the world a better place, and I am an ambitious woman in STEM who is excited for an impactful career in sustainable energy engineering and vehicle design.

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University studying Mechanical Engineering with a Minor in Media Design in May 2023. At CMU, I was the system lead for the the Accumulator Container and designed the Two Force Members on the Formula SAE Racing team. I started my own aerial cinematography company, received two independent research grants at CMU, completed research in two robotics labs, and interned at X, the moonshot factory after my freshman year of college. Most recently, I completed an 8 month co-op at Tesla Motors as a Vehicle Design Integration Engineer. I have also participated in multiple hackathons and completed lots of interdisciplinary technical and creative projects in my free time. More details about all of these experiences are on my portfolio page.
