I am a third year PhD student advised by Shwetak Patel in the Ubiquitous Computing Lab at the University of Washington Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineer.
My work focuses on leveraging ubiqutious technology and artificial intelligence for social good, sustainability, and urbanism.
I also make music with my guitar and synthesizer as well as digital art using Blender.
I'm broadly interested in leveraging big data, ubiquitous technology, and artificial intelligence for social good. I'm passionate about my work having a positive impact on environmental sustainability, public health, and the equity and efficiency of the built environment.
To do this, I like to build novel sensing systems on smart devices which can be quickly deployed at scale.
I also like to build systems on top of existing ubiquitous data sources such as remote sensing images, data from open source smart infrastructure, and data from social media.
I am most excited about problems that are grounded in physics, signal processing, sociology, or behavior science.
Other topics that interest me are security, data visualization, and human-in-the-loop modeling.
