Stanford University

I am currently a graduate student at Stanford University. I was previously at UC Berkeley where I studied Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I spent most of my time there researching systems and deep learning at the Berkeley RISE/Sky Computing Lab, Google Brain, and Tesla Autopilot. I am interested in real-world applications of deep learning, data systems, computer- and human-generated art, jazz, and the design of products and systems.
