Mohammad was born and raised in Syracuse, NY and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area when he was 14 years old. He is no longer in school but graduated from Syracuse University in 2010 with a Bachelors degree in Science, and in 2013 from University California Davis with a Masters degree in Science, with an emphasis on biomechanics. Mohammad chose the REDDI internship because he wanted to get experience in design and research in an industrial context, working with companies and engineers to develop new devices and technologies. He felt that working with The Taylor Collaboration would give him the opportunity to improve his engineering skills and produce fine research and design products. Mohammad likes to maintain an active lifestyle, especially through exercise. He also enjoy spending time with friends, as well as reading up on current events.

Learn a little bit more about one of our REDDI interns, Ryan Larsen! He was born in Los Angeles, CA but he spent several years growing up in Minnesota. He has lived in many places such as Seattle, Key West, and Baltimore, just to name a few. He studied Mechanical Engineering at California Maritime Academy in Vallejo, CA. He found out about the REDDI Program through his school, because many of the students and instructors have been involved with The Taylor Collaboration. Ryan likes that REDDI interns at The Taylor Collaboration get to work on research and design projects. Ryan also enjoy cycling, he once rode a bicycle from Vancouver, BC to Tijuana all the way along the Pacific coast!
