Brief Biographical Sketch:

I have recently graduated with a BS and MS in Materials Science and Engineering with a focus on electronic materials, thin films, and semiconductors as well as a BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from UC Berkeley focused on digital circuits and devices. Currently I am pursuing an MS in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University with a focus on computer software systems and the hopes of improving human productivity and efficiency through software.

In my free time I love creating and mixing music, as well as dancing to Bollywood/fusion music - in the spirit of always wanting to learn, I also am looking to improve my Salsa.
