Hi, I am Simon.

I am studying at UC Berkeley, majoring in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I like to build hardware and software systems that make the impossible inevitable. Currently, I am at Anyscale building distributed systems. Previously, I worked on Autonomous Vehicles at NVIDIA, Hardware Startup Prototyping and Investment at HAX, Brain-Computer Interfaces at Interaxon. In past times, I spent weekends hacking up side projects at 30+ hackathons around the world.

I like to read Greek & Roman Classics, German Intellects (Nietzsche, Kant, Hegel), English Romantics (William Blake), etc. I also like to run, paint, and learn new instruments (saxophone, guitar). I lived in Bay Area, Toronto, Cambridge, Shenzhen, and Shanghai. I draw inspiration from friends in Interact Fellowship and Accel Scholars.

If you are interested in my journey, please continue browsing the site. I enjoy meeting people from all disciplines, so feel free to contact me at simonguozirui [@] berkeley dot edu.

At this time, I am looking for graduate school / research (in Computer Architecture and Systems) or full-time oppurtunity starting in 2023. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me!
