Matthew Cherry – SSTF Treasurer – I study Mechanical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I graduated from Hudson Valley Community College and transferred to RPI in 2017. I’m a Christian, and I’m a part of the Rensselaer Christian Association on campus. My coursework includes a Sustainability by Design course, in which I’m working in a group to develop a method to recycle plastic bottles that may later be used as plastic filament for 3D printers in the Forge Lab. I’m originally from the greater capital district, so I have a heart for the area and I’d love to see improvements to the community to make the area more sustainable for generations to come!
