About

Bio

I am a 2nd year PhD student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. My research interests are in crowdsourced democracy and mechanism design. I received a B.S. in ECE and B.A. in Plan II Honors from the University of Texas at Austin with highest and special honors, both in May 2015. While at UT Austin, I researched 5G cellular and heterogeneous wireless networks and built a large scale recommendation engine for books. I have interned as a Software Engineer at Microsoft and as a Space Academy Research Associate at NASA Glenn Research Center. I also was a Next Generation Scholar at the Strauss Center for International Security and Law and served as a Legislative Intern at the Office of Texas State Senator Davis. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and working on personal projects.
