Liam Gallagher is a co-founder of Blaze Electrical Engineering. Blaze EE got its start creating automated bar tending machines, but are constantly moving forward with new and innovative ideas. Liam has also worked for 4 years designing wild-land firefighting systems for the US military, using his Associates of Applied Science degree in Welding, sparking his interest in engineering. He is currently majoring in both Electrical Engineering and Mathematics at Colorado State University, focusing his efforts on integrated circuit design and cryptography. Liam was appointed team lead for his senior design project, a CMOS Biosensor for implantable biomedical applications.
Liam and his teammate, Zach Zasada, took the grand prize in the 2013 IEEE Open Design Competition for the Arduino Palmer, a machine that makes the perfect Arnold palmer to the users specifications. He is currently expanding this idea to a fully automated mixing machine that can prepare various cocktails at the press of a button. Liam has also undertaken various projects using microcontrollers such as, a platform for facilitating mathematics education for elementary level students. He used a microcontroller and created a thermal test chamber for testing integrated circuits in a controlled environment.
When Liam is not pulling his hair out over schoolwork, you will find him outside enjoying the Rocky Mountains. His interests include rock climbing, fishing, camping, and exploring the great outdoors. He enjoys playing with his two dogs and savoring a pint of Guinness after a long day of work.
