Team TATRC would like to extend a heartfelt congratulations to Mr. Ethan Quist, Robotics Engineer for TATRC’s Medical Robotics & Autonomous Systems (MedRAS) Division. While Ethan has only been with the TATRC team for just under a year, he has defined himself as a critical asset and essential part of the growing MEDRAS division. He was especially instrumental in Quarter 1 with his contributions in getting our intramural work back on schedule and in the FY22 new proposal submissions.

Ethan has been key in the execution of several MedRAS intramural research projects in the past year. As a new TATRC employee joining in January of 2020, he was given a tremendous amount of responsibility for managing projects and executing research and engineering tasks with minimal guidance and oversight. Ethan served as the lead engineer for two research projects that were behind schedule at the time he started and in the months since his arrival, he has achieved significant results and major progress towards getting these projects back on schedule. This is an especially impressive accomplishment for a new employee operating under the challenges imposed by COVID-19.

In addition to excelling in his role as lead engineer on intramural research projects, he has provided valuable SME guidance and oversight to extramural research partners. Ethan was essential in the process of conceiving, authoring, and managing two new intramural research proposal submissions which involved significant coordination with external partners. Ethan has demonstrated his commitment as a team player and can be counted on for timely and high quality execution of assigned tasks.

Congratulations again on this well-deserved honor, Ethan. We’re so glad you’re a part of Team TATRC!
