I describe myself a proud tree-hugger and speed junkie with a passion for everything engineering. My mission in life is to show that eco-friendly can be fast and fun, and that women are excellent engineers. I call my 270 mph (434 km/h) battery-powered motorcycle “eco-activism in disguise”. My motorcycle is dubbed “KillaJoule” and I built it in my garage as a hobby project while in graduate school. It is the world’s fastest electric motorcycle and its sole purpose is to show that eco-friendly doesn’t have to mean slow or boring.
