LinkedIn GitHub Twitter CV

I am a graduate student in computer science at UC Berkeley. I am part of the RISE Lab, where I am advised by Professor Joseph Gonzalez. My research centers on large-scale visual inference, spanning both computer vision (low-latency video recognition) and computer systems (low-cost video analytics).

In recent summers, I have interned at Microsoft Research and Databricks. I'm also the founder of video link messaging service LinkMeUp, a mobile app with users in over 70 countries.

I received a BSE with highest honors in computer science from Princeton in 2017.
