Featured MakerSpace TA: GuiHui (Jacky) Liu

GuiHui Liu is a senior at NYU Tandon studying Mechanical Engineering in the BS/MS program. He is also soon to become (Fall 2017) the Vice President of Tau Beta Pi, the Engineering Honor Society.

Gui works in the Mechatronics lab as a Research Assistant. He has worked on several projects such as a smart glove for finger rehabilitation. At the end of the lab he has published a paper at MIT URTC (Undergrad Research Technological Conference).

At the MakerSpace, Gui specializes in Repairing the ultimakers (3D printers), 3D modeling in SolidWorks, Electronic equipment and prototyping items such as Arduinos and Raspberry-pis. He has worked on a robotic hand and arm at the MakerSpace, which can be controlled by a glove! If you see a box full of 3D printed parts and electronics, it is his personal project box.

Gui can be found around the GreenHouse displays playing with the raspberry-pis, or by the soldering stations working on PCbs, or helping any students with their projects who are having issues with their prototypes. Gui has facilitated Arduino Workshops at the GreenHouse in the MakerSpace.

Anyone who knows him can be easily categorized into one of the two teams: Team Gui or Team Jacky 🙂

So the next time you don’t know what is wrong with your prototype, you know Gui is your man!
