I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington (UW) where I work with Vikram Iyer. I also do some work in the Autonomous Insect Robotics Lab run by Sawyer Fuller. Before I joined the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering, I did my Bachelor's in Electrical & Computer Engineering at UW where I performed research on origami structures with Jinkyu Yang in the Laboratory for Engineered Materials and Structures. My research interests include low-power electronics, small-scale robotics, computing for sustainability, and applications of machine learning. I am the cofounder of A Vision for Electronic Literacy & Access (AVELA). K-12 STEM outreach is one of my passions, and I actively pursue efforts to widen STEM interest of Underrepresented K-12 students of color.
