Hello!

I’m currently a 3rd year undergraduate at UC Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. My focus is on signals, controls, and machine learning. Outside of school, I hack together projects inspired by new things I’ve learned or problems I see in the world. I also write articles on Medium about tech and public policy.

Currently I'm learning: 3D modeling with Blender, Intelligent Investing
