I graduated from the Masters program in Mechanical Engineering: Robotics at Stanford University in 2012, and have been working in tech ever since. First on UCS and virtual switches for Cisco, then on the Data Science/Analytics team at Yammer, to the Science team at Twitch, and now to the Data Science Team at Metromile. My undergraduate degree was also from Stanford, in Engineering Physics with a specialization in Electromechanical Systems, and I had numerous internships working in the technology field including as a software engineering intern at Tesla Motors, and as a program manager at Microsoft's Office division.
Outside of work, I am very interested in national security, medicine and medical practice, and the economy. I play competitive sand volleyball in my spare time.
I've also worked on cross-organization projects with Bing, Microsoft O365, Office Big Data, and Sharepoint. Over the last 2-3 months, my work has centered largely around using data to improve the Yammer mobile platform (Android and iOS), as well as investigations into how data can be used to help gauge the importance/impact of performance and reliability work. I also work internally to the analytics team on ways to help the team leverage data more effectively and abstract many of the technical prerequisites away from performing effective analysis for both ourselves and our customers. From May 2013 to August 2014 (1 year 4 months) TAC Engineer II, Server Virtualization @ TAC Engineer at Cisco-San Jose. I worked on the Server Virtualization Team, which deals primarily with the Unified Computing products (UCS B Series, UCS C Series, Nexus 1000v Virtual Switch). I also TA'ed for the Java/Intro to Programming course offered internally. From July 2012 to May 2013 (11 months) Teaching Assistant, Physics Department @ Teaching Assistant for Physics 40 series. Courses included Physics 45: Light and Heat, and Physics 41: Mechanics. I held discussion/breakout sections for 30+ students twice a week during which I would present further on topics covered within the course lecture, and also would hold office hours to help students who were struggling with the course material. From September 2011 to March 2012 (7 months) Software Engineering Intern: Battery Department @ My summer project was to create a GUI to guide the testing process for the Cell Characterization Lab. Using Matlab on MySQL, I was able to take a process that had been recorded entirely by hand in excel tables or post-it notes by the entire research department, and transform it into a largely automated recording process for experimental results. I then identified and implemented hardware/firmware solutions to further enhance lab speed and accuracy and automate to an even large degree the battery cell testing process
