I'm a curious dude who likes to build and learn about everything technology related.
These days, I lead the electrical team at Freeform
In the past, I've designed and built super cool hardware for Apple
I've interned at Amazon's Amazon Go Hardware Infrastructure team, Apple's iPad Pro and Pencil Team, and Tesla's Manufacturing Test Team.
Before college, I spent most of my free time building Electronics Projects. At UCSD, I dedicate most of my free time to projects I lead at SEDS at UCSD.
I got my BS in Electrical Engineering from from UCSD in 2018
My Myers Briggs personality type is INTP. Thanks to college, I'm now moving towards ENTP.
I joined Freeform as the first electrical engineer. Here, I built the entire electrical hardware stack from the ground up and took it from prototype to production. My broad range of work here spans from high performance compute, high speed IO, power electroincis, precision opto-mechanical devices, robotics to algrithom design.
I joined Apple as a Hardware System Integrator on a product team. My work involves designing, manufacturing, and validating proof-of-concept prototypes as well as mass production intent hardware throughout the product iteration cycles. I collaborate cross functionally to solve product opens from architecture to integration.
I created the Galactic Unite Gavin Jones Prize at UC San Diego, a prize designed to support undergraduate STEM+ leaders in Space Exploration. I synergized support from Virgin Galactic, UCSD Gordon Center, and donors (Namely Mr. Gavin Jones and Mr. Scott Borden). I'm proud to have left a lasting legacy at UC San Diego thanks to the support all the stakehodlers.
I was part of the hardware infrastructure team at Amazon's unmanned store project - Amazon Go. I engaged in design work related to with sensor, power, and embedded technologies during my time there. During my internship there, the Amazon Go store count trippled! A month prior to my internship, I actually got to talk to Jeff Bezos!
I worked as an intern at Apple's iPad EE Systems Integration team, in conjunction with a few projects I helped with at the Core Input Devices team. My area of focus was testing and validation of iPad Pros, and the interface between the iPad and the Apple Pencil. My work involved building complex PCBs for testing and validation, developing an automated corner case testing system for iPads, and scripting Verilog modules for prototypes.
I worked in the mysterious Tesla Factory at Fremont. As an intern of the Manufacturing Test team, I helped built various End of Line testers to qualify components for final assembly my tester projects
involved building industrial electrical panels, designing robotic features to interface with the parts under test, and designing custom PCB for certain custom functions. One of my projects was deployed at the Giga Factory.
During my time here, I got to talk to Elon Musk once, pretty cool eh!
I spent a year at the Shtrahman Lab, researching the mystery of memory formation in the brain. I designed and built an automated system to run the Neurogenesis and Temporal Pattern Recognition experiment.
The experiment teaches the mice a"song" by detecting binary decisions and awarding correct decisions. The brain is imaged while all this is happening. I also helped develop a miniature EEG system for mice.
I worked with Professor Matt Shtrahman during my time in the lab.
I joined SEDS as "the Electronics guy", and built the EE core team at SEDS from scratch. I solo designed and built the control and DAQ system for SEDS's first test stand, and lead a team to build the launch control and avionics for the Vulcan-1 rocket. I moved on to kickoff the Colossus project as the Project Manager and Chief Engineer, taking it from infancy to completion. I also served as Vice President of Engineering from May to November 17'.
Colossus, the project I lead, won this award at SEDS-USA's annual conference SpaceVision!
I am a Gordon Scholar at UCSD's Gordon Center for Engineering Leadership. This program was made possible by Mr. Bernard Gordon, the guy who invented Analog Digital Conversion!
I was invited to judge the Moonbots competition, a challenge created by the Google Lunar X-Prize to promote STEM education to teenagers all over the world.
My automated procedure scored #1 in the world for the 2014 season of Vex Robotics Programming Challenge
The Galactic Unite Gavin Jone's Prize, which I created at UCSD, was featured in VG's twitter
For two years, I presented keynote on the Development of Colossus
Footies of my full send attempt was featured on @senditofficial's story
Student representative at Altium's annual conference, featured in their recap
I was featured in Ashlee Vance's Hello World, Mojave eposode, also Discovery's Daily Planet Show
