About


Current

I'm a 2nd year Electrical Engineering PhD student at Stanford broadly interested in "cool" applications that "matter." I like finding (and hopefully acheiving) fundamental limits on "the best we can do." You should find me in person to figure out what that actually means.

I'm a part of the Future Data Systems research group, working with Prof. Peter Bailis. As part of Stanford's first year rotation program, I also had the opportunity to work with Prof. Oussama Khatib and Prof. Krishna Shenoy.


Past

I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2015 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

I explored low-latency, high-reliability wireless control with Gireeja Ranade, Prof. Anant Sahai, and other awesome people in BLISS and BWRC. I also briefly worked with Jeff Mahler on robot grasping in the Goldberg Lab, and with Jenn Logg on overconfidence and biased judgments in Prof. Don Moore's accuracy Lab.

I was a summer intern on the Anti-Spam team at Twitter, where I worked on combatting URL spam. I also interned on the Advertising Technology, Analytics Data Platform team at A9, where I explored database options to enable faster, cheaper access to ad exchange data, facilitating quicker analysis. Prior to that, I spent a summer at Nokia HR Global Central streamlining exit procedures, and some time at Berkeley's Museum of Vertebrate Zoology assembling and categorizing small animal skeletons.


Teaching

I was an Undergraduate Student Instructor for EE 126, Probability and Stochastic Processes. Risha Sharma, Paul Rigge, and I created the first iterations of application-oriented iPython labs to complement the theoretical coursework (you can find the original versions on the 2014 home page).

I was a course assistant for CS 70, Discrete Math and Probability Theory. I helped with office hours, homework parties, midterm creation and grading.

I was a reader for Econ C175, Economic Demography.

I am also an English teacher for SkimaTalk (though recently, not as active).


When I'm not busy wasting time on the internet, I enjoy travelling, bouldering, practicing archery, and drawing dinosaurs.
