Meet Haley Kim 

I am thrilled to be joining the inspiring community at HTHMA!   I have been working on unmanned aircraft since I finished school, and I am eager to transition out of corporate culture before I become too jaded to continue believing that we can make the world a better place.  

I grew up in a military family which meant that we bounced from one Air Force base to the next.  I started my life on Guam, made stops in central California, Las Vegas, and Louisiana, then finished high school in San Diego.  I earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering from UCSD and a MS in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University.  I have always loved learning, and I fully discovered the joy of teaching while TAing undergraduate classes at Stanford.  I often delayed working on my own projects because helping others learn was so rewarding.  I am especially passionate about encouraging young women to pursue engineering and science.

I am looking forward to meeting and working with all of you next school year!
