About Me

I'm a sophomore in the Jerome Fisher Program in Management & Technology pursuing a B.S.E. in Computer Science from SEAS and a B.S. in Economics concentrating in statistics and management (entrepreneurship & innnovation) from Wharton. Currently, I'm an undergraduate researcher at Penn's GRASP Lab working on semantic localization, mapping & navigation and previously on autonomous ROS control. I recently interned at Xinshu Credit in Shanghai and developed a blockchain-based P2P lending platform. In the past, I have interned at Stanford and UC Berkeley working on space robot motion planning and optoelectronic device automation respectively.

At Penn, I help run outreach and travel for the PennApps hackathon, co-direct the Pennvention tech entrepreneurship competition, and am a member of the UPennalizers robot soccer team. I'm also a conservatory-trained pianist who has performed at Carnegie Hall, Paris, and Austria. On the side, I enjoy traveling (check out my instagram!) as well as playing basketball (go Warriors!).
