Renee is an aerospace engineer at Facebook. She works on airplanes, satellites, and materials of the future – projects that hope to one day deliver internet to the parts of the world that don’t have it yet. She believes that giving people access to the internet will help them have a better quality of life. Prior to aerospace, she designed enclosures and patented server architecture for server hardware in all of Facebook’s data centers. She’s also had stints of analysis work on buildings and bridges as well as lightweight materials for automotive crashworthiness applications.
If not at work you can usually find Renee at the gym, a hipster coffee shop, or alone in a dance studio dancing obsessively/ figuring out choreography from YouTube videos. Renee lives in San Francisco with her three succulents, Trevor, Toby, and Evelyn as well as her beloved Pomeranian stuffed animal, Biggs.
