Hometown: Los Angeles
I have always had a passion for building and fixing, whether it be mechanical systems, electrical systems, vehicles or just a malfunctioning motorcycle. I grew up building and fixing things since I could remember.
Undergraduate Education: Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego
Currently: Pursing my PhD in Computer Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. I intend to do research on controls and autonomous systems specifically for applications in urban vehicle transportation and infrastructure. The future of transportation is going to be an urban landscape of smart roads and autonomous cars flowing in an accident free and congestion free environment.
Notable Mentions: I was co-author on the publication: “The Market Impact of Standardized Design in Commercial PEV Battery Pack Purchase and Disposal”. A joint study with Ricardo, inc. BMW North America Inc., Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) and San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E).
