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 hardware and software for intelligent systems, apps, and devices that improve the world. In particular, I love robotics, connected networks, data visualization, 3D graphics and smart algorithms. I'm a Master's candidate in the mechanical design group at Stanford, and am currently exploring possibilities for summer 2014.
