Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm an Electrical Engineering graduate student working in condensed matter physics. I love to learn and pick up new skills. After high school I worked for a video game company during the summer. Then subsequent summers I spent doing research in academic, government and industrial settings working on solar cells, microelectromechanical system (MEMS) accelerometers and MEMS displays.

I grew up in San Francisco and did my undergraduate degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics at UCSD. In my free time I am training for a triathlon.
