Hello!

I’m currently a Masters Student at UC Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. My focus is on signal processing 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
