Linda Yan, First-Year, Mechanical Engineer and Design Major 

Linda is a first-year student majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Design. It is her first semester being a part of the Sheman Communications team, as she is currently the social media chair, creating daily content and coverage of all the Sherman Center action. Not only is she within the communications team but also enjoys being an involved member of her community. She is an ambassador of the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE), and Forge, a program for builders, entrepreneurs, and leaders.

"One thing I love about being a part of the Sherm is most definitely the people, especially Ted. I've been able to gain so much professional experience through different Sherm initiatives and programs. In the future, I am looking forward to getting to know more about the Sheman Center community and hope to plan joint events with SASE! " - Linda Yan

"SaluTemp is a group of Northeastern University students and alumni devoted to improving the quality of healthcare. The goal is to solve the unmet need for safe storage for temperature-sensitive medications. The team is led by Theodora Christopher who graduated in December of 2021 with a degree in biology and Benjamin Dottinger a current fourth-year majoring in health sciences. Gabby Bruck a current fifth-year health sciences major, Tyler Royere a current BS+MS computer engineering student and Luke San Antonio Bialecki a 2021 graduate who majored in computer science are all instrumental in the development of the device and companion application. Theodora was a recipient of the inaugural Women Who Empower Awards and collectively the team has achieved several honors including the Honors Propel Grant, PEAK Summit Award, and Alpha Fund."

Extra Credit with Professor Mark Sivak! 📝

"Here I share something design or tech related from the week for those looking for just a little extra credit."

While it was the subject of the first Extra Credit, I have to go back to 99 Percent Invisible this week and the reason why is that we have to talk about something I hate: daylight savings time. Yes, as a parent and pet owner this Sunday is one I dread where we “spring forward” and I get bad sleep for about a week after.
This episode covers time in design and gets into the history and impact of daylight savings. There is discussion in Congress about changing the law, like from senator Ed Markey, but for now we will all suffer through the time change on Sunday. So go ahead and give the podcast a listen while you are enjoying Spring Break.
Thoughts and feedback about the extra credit this week or want to submit one for next week? Email Professor Sivak at
