I am a technologist and maker dedicated to improving the world through my creations. I had designed and built numerous products and prototypes (hardware and software) through internships, side projects, and hackathons (24 so far). Currently, I am pursuing a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley.
I am currently looking for internship and research opportunities for the summer of 2020. Please feel free to contact me!

I like to design products and I have attended many university-level hackathons to practice my prototyping skills in team settings.
The interaction between devices and humans fascinates me and I love developing new expereinces that enhance human ability and relationship with robotics.
I have developed many robotics and hardware projects. I love engineering a system and putting mechinical, electrical, and embeded systems together.
I have created many software systems (web and native) to automate workflow and gain insights.
I love proving phenomena and exploring possibilities by doing research.
I am very involved educating and building the youth tech community. I have been involved in Horizons Robotics tutoring (teaching 5-graders from public school robotics) as well as organizing three large-scale hackathons and many workshops.
