Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a third year PhD EE student at Stanford. I design circuits and systems for ultrasound based low power systems. These systems range from biometric scanners, to implants, and ingestible devices that could also have a medical value (screen for cancer, etc...)

I have interned at Apple, where I worked on extending the battery life in devices by making the circuits consume less power.

I play the guitar, and enjoy music a lot. I am considering teaching a class about playing the guitar as well, and the different types of guitars/music effects.

I have not taught school students before, and I am looking forward to it.
