I'm an undergrad at Stanford University studying Electrical Engineering. My research is in the Urban Informatics Lab, advised by Professor Rishee Jain. I work on city-scale energy modeling to better understand how and when energy resources are used. My goal is to make cities smarter and more sustainable, such as by identifying energy inefficiencies in buildings and improving mobility through safe, intelligent public transit systems.

Prior to Stanford, I went to high school in Lexington, MA, during which I did reasonably well in various science competitions (which for some of you, might be why you're here). Outside of being a full-time student/researcher, I enjoy watering my plants, taking the occasional photo, and wishing I could play guitar as well as John Mayer.
