I’m a PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington and NSF Graduate Research Fellow. I work in the UW Ubiquitous Computing Lab and am advised by Shwetak Patel.
My research interests are developing solutions that sit at the intersection of Computer Science and Health. My recent projects have involved creating Deep Learning models to manipulate or extract information from audio, such as emotion or new bio-signals.
Prior to beginning my PhD, I worked as an Embedded Systems Engineer at a smart LED company, Stack Lighting, a subsidiary of Philips Lighting. In this role, I developed production-ready microcontroller C code for smart LEDs. I also designed signal processing and machine learning techniques for the RF doppler motion sensor embedded within each bulb.
In my spare time, I love staying active, including running, biking, and playing soccer, and traveling. I also believe in using technology to improve the lives of those around the world and am an active member in Engineers Without Borders.
