Resume/CV

I am currently working towards the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering at Stanford University, advised by Professor Stephen Boyd. My research focuses on convex optimization, and in particular its applications to machine learning and control. I received the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University, in 2019, and the B.S. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2017. Previously, I have interned at Lyft Level 5, Google (in particular, Skybox Imaging/Terra Bella), Qualcomm-Atheros, and SoRoCo.
