I'm a middle child, coffee snob, reluctant runner, and robot enthusiast.

I started a PhD in EECS at MIT in Fall 2018. Before MIT, I worked at Google for two years as an Associate Product Manager. I graduated from Harvard in 2016.


Past Projects

Piggybacking Robots

My senior thesis, a project which set out to answer the question of whether we place too much trust in robotic systems, specifically in the physical security domain.

Connected Hearts

A collaboration with Michelle Cone. A distributed system for visualizing the human heartbeat. A webcam, hidden behind one-way mirror, takes your pulse.

SwimSwallow: A Robotic Fish

A collaboration with Lezhi Li. SwimSwallow is an "informal robot," meaning it is made from cheap materials (laser-cut acrylic, Arduino, and waterproof servos) and is designed to be easy to construct.

A Juice-Jacking Charging Station

A charging station which compromises users' privacy by accessing their media. When a user connects a device, the charging station looks for a DCIM folder. Over a 2-week test, 22 people used this device.

L-System Trees

A CS175: Computer Graphics project in which I "grow" trees from L-Systems.

OCaml Boids

A collaboration with Jo Booth. An implementation of Reynold's classic 1986 flocking algorithm in OCaml.
