PhD in Electrical Engineering, Stanford University
I received my PhD in EE in late 2020. My advisors were Sachin Katti and Keith Winstein in the Platform Lab, and my research interests are wireless sensing and communications systems. In February 2021 joined VMware as a research scientist specializing in edge/IoT and sustainability. I have also worked with Ranveer Chandra (Microsoft Research) and Pengyu Zhang (Alibaba) on low-power wireless backscatter communication and its applications. In Fall 2017 I was a TA for EE107 Networked Embedded Systems.
