Leif Amber is an electrical engineer with a passion for alternative energy and electric vehicle technology. He holds his M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Clarkson University, where he was a driving force behind the electric snowmobile conversion project. He has also worked with micro-hydroelectric generators. Leif enjoys working in a hands-on R&D environment, and hopes to apply his design skills to develop methods to reduce our reliance on unsustainable use of energy and material resources. When he gets burnt out and fed up with engineering he can be found cooking, woodworking, sewing, “fixing” various types of machinery/electronics, or exploring the outdoors.
Luke Amber studies Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. Before Princeton, he attended several different high school programs including the Mountain School, the Island School, and the Vermont Academy of Science and Technology. His interests lie in the fields of transportation and alternative energy. He started thinking about electric motorcycles upon realizing that most of the trips he takes on his own gas-powered motorcycle would be possible with a modern electric drivetrain. He sees electric motorcycles as a way to apply the advantages of alternative energy to the field of personal transportation.
Nathan Haley is entering his final year as a student of Princeton University's Department of Economics. Having been raised in a nomadic family moving between many urban centers in Europe and the United States, he continually finds himself obsessed with making personal transportation more fun and efficient. When not occupied with academic pursuits, he enjoys pursuing a certificate in cello performance, spending time with animals and wrenching his own gas-powered motorcycles.
Hailing from Los Angeles, Christine Odabashian is a senior in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University and an alumna of the University of Oxford via the Princeton-Oxford Exchange in engineering. She has a passion for streamlining the interface of interaction between people and technology, always with an eye on the larger goals of sustainability and technological advancement. In addition to her academic pursuits, she fancies athletics, artistic design, dogs, and making tasks more efficient.
