Computer Science & Data Science @ UC Berkeley
Research Intern @ IBM Research


I am currently a student at UC Berkeley studying Computer Science and Data Science who loves to use the power of technology. I participate in robotics competitions, write iPhone applications, attend hackathons as time permits, and look for opportunities to work with cool technology. I currently have 6 apps on the Apple App Store used by tens of thousands of people across the world. When I'm away from HAL (my computer), I enjoy playing tennis, flying drones, and traveling. I can read and write Chinese, and speak some Swedish.

At Berkeley I am the Chief of Staff for OCTO and work on the iOS team developing Berkeley Mobile. I'm also on the team organizing Pinnacle, a competitive collegiate hackathon coming Fall 2021.
