Meet The Officers

Harry Koos

President

Hello! My name is Harry Koos and I am a third year industrial engineering major from Penngrove, California. As president of the QL+ Student Association, it is my job to oversee all aspects of the program, maintain our partnerships, and look for ways to expand upon our mission. QL+ has provided me with so many opportunities to gain meaningful hands-on engineering experience in my first two years of college, and now I’m excited to be able to create those opportunities for other students. I believe everyone deserves a life without limits, which is why I choose to dedicate my time to this organization. Within QL+ I hope to develop a culture that encourages learning, collaboration, and innovation. When I’m not living in the QL+ lab, I enjoy staying active with sports like soccer and basketball. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about our student association.

Craig Icban

Senior Vice President

Hello! My name is Craig Icban and I am a third year Mechanical Engineering major from Temecula, CA. As the Senior Vice President of QL+SA, I oversee all technical operations within the student association for the sole purpose of benefitting the technical capacity of the lab and our members. Entering with barebones technical knowledge, QL+ truly supported my growth in all facets by directly exposing me to practical engineering experience and team building. Beyond that, I am humbled to be surrounded by other students driven with the purpose to serve those in need. As an officer, it is my goal to facilitate the same experiences I had to new members that are driven to make a difference in people’s lives. Outside from QL+, I enjoy spending time surfing our beautiful Central Coast, exploring new outdoor terrain, participating in intramural sports, and playing the guitar.

Jessica Chow

Vice President of Operations

Hi! My name is Jessica Chow, and I'm a second year Biomedical Engineering major from Chino Hills, CA. As Vice President of Operations, I am responsible for club correspondence and logistics. I joined QL+ SA for the unique experience offered to members to positively impact the lives of community members by engineering a better quality of life. I look forward to contributing to the growth and success of this association, and I appreciate the opportunity to participate in such an amazing organization.

Noah Thompson

Treasurer

Hi! My name is Noah Thompson and I am a fourth year Mechanical Engineer from Orange County, California. As Treasurer of the QL+ Student Association, I oversee all financial aspects of our association. This includes managing funds to best promote the growth and learning of our student body and most importantly, positively impact the lives of others with an immediate physical need. I’ve been a sports guy my whole life including: football, baseball, snowboarding, and mountain biking. Due to my experience in sports, I have been exposed to countless injuries, both personally and with teammates. Through this, I have developed such gratitude for the doctors and technology that allow people to continue doing the activities they love; this is why I am so excited to be a part of this organization that helps others in the same way that I have been helped. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about QL+SA, or myself in general. Thanks!

Shannon Hoye

Corporate Ambassador

Hey, I’m Shannon from Walnut Creek, CA! I’m a fourth year Biomedical Engineering student with a concentration of Mechanical Design. As the Corporate Ambassador, I am in charge of creating and maintaining relationships with companies. I organize tours, info sessions and gain sponsors (both corporate and individual) for the student association. One of my passions in life is forming and maintaining relationships with people and this position helps me do that which I love!

Bradley Kwan

Technical Director

Hi! My name is Bradley Kwan and I am a third year mechanical engineering major concentrating in mechatronics from Foster City, California. During my first year at Cal Poly, QL+ offered a great learning space and community, bringing me up to speed on all the basic engineering software and principles. As technical director, I hope to continue the tradition of creating a safe learning space, providing members with the resources necessary to flourish and postively impact their peers and the community of San Luis Obispo. I will bring members up to speed on multiple rapid prototyping techniques, engineering principles, and engineering programs. My interests include powered prosthetics, animatronics, and robotics applications for the medical, manufacturing, and entertainment industries. Outside of the classroom, I play the keyboard for a local church and rock climb on my free time.

Hello, my name is Gage Vogtlin. I am a second-year biomedical engineering major from Sacramento California. My job ensures the smooth operation and organization of the lab while providing overall assistance in the Technical Core responsibilities such as 3D printing and workshops. The QL+ Student Association has allowed me to gain irreplaceable firsthand experience through club events and as leader of a Lab Development Project my first year. QL+ is a special place because it lets me fuse my passions of creation and helping others. While I’m not in the QL+ lab, I pursue other interests such as assisting in research experiments at the Biomedical Engineering Department, barbequing, and playing guitar in local jam sessions. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, especially regarding 3D printing or manufacturing resources on campus.

Allison Rabin

Community Outreach

Hi everyone! My name is Allison and I’m in my second year of biomedical engineering. When I visited Cal Poly for the first time, I got the opportunity to tour the QL+ lab and hear about all the amazing things students do through this club, as well as all the community members whose lives are touched by our work. Seeing the hands on experience undergraduates participate in while also changing lives was a huge deciding factor in my decision to come to Cal Poly. After an unforgettable year in the club, I want to give back, spread the word, and show students like me the impact they can make on peoples lives through the QL+ program while growing their skills as engineers and teammates. As community outreach officer, I will bring fellow students together and contribute to the strong community of passionate, innovative, and hard working engineers dedicated to the mission of QL+. I will also use our platform to influence the next generation of engineers at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels through outreach events. My goal is to bridge the gap between prospective students and strong student mentors. Contact me with questions about how to get involved in our growing community!
