Hi! I'm currently a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. I'm interested in social algorithms and crowdsourced democracy, philosophy, and politics, among other things. I completed my undergraduate education at The University of Texas at Austin in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Plan II in 2015. I enjoy reading, camping, and listening to music in my spare time. CV.
