hello i'm an engineer and designer


Living in Palo Alto, California

My work lies at the intersection of mechatronic design and computer science. I create software and hardware for intelligent systems, apps, and devices that improve the world. In particular, I love robotics, connected networks, data visualization, machine learning, 3D graphics and smart algorithms. Bachelor's at Princeton, Master's at Stanford.
