Welcome to my website! I tried to code it from scratch, so it might get fancier as I learn more HTML-- but it might not!
I'm a recent computer engineering graduate from UCSC, where I placed emphasis in my studies upon robotic systems and the control/estimation thereof. For many years, my love affair with engineering has kept me hungry for knowledge, and pursuing a graduate degree in the topic allowed me to fully sate that hunger one class at a time, as well as get my hands dirty with a major project. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to do my project work at NASA Ames Research Center, where I was a research and development intern in the Fluid Mechanics Laboratory between July 2019 and September 2020.
Before that, I was a teaching assistant for the undergrad Computer Engineering capstone class, which placed me and my fellow TA in a role of management and mentorship for several small teams. My students honed their skills, explored highly specialized topics, and explored their interests while learning engineering design cycle principles, group dynamics, professional/technical communication, and other engineering skills. During this time I discovered a love for teaching, as it's quite exciting to understand a problem and work with other people to best frame the topic to help it click for them. Between my time as a grad student, TA, and NASA intern, I feel well rounded in my abilities and look forward to whatever is next in store.
