I am a Triton in the CSE department at UC, San Diego (aka no.1 campus in the nation for surfing). Before this, I worked at earth's most customer-centric company for a year, strengthening their Ads infrastructure. A short time ago in a galaxy nearby, I graduated from the same school with a B.S. in Computer Science and a B.A. in Economics.
My research interests lie at the intersection of machine learning and systems. Particularly, I am passionate about designing and building innovative data systems, data analytics systems, and machine learning systems.
Apr. 2019: I will return back to San Diego this fall to start my grad school journey.
