I am a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. I am in working in Allison Okamura's laboratory, the Collaborative Haptics and Robotics in Medicine (CHARM) Lab. My research interests include haptic devices and virtual reality. Currently, I am working on haptic devices for social interaction and multi degree of freedom origami haptic devices.
In May 2015, I received my B.S. in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College. From July 2015-August 2016, I traveled the world as a Watson Fellow. I organized and executed research on global economics and poverty alleviation in Jordan, India, Uganda, Greece, and Chile. My research focused on assessing the impact of microloans, direct grants, and foreign aid. For more information, please see My Watson or my Blog.
In 2012 and 2013, respectively, I performed research in biomedical engineering in Dr. Elizabeth Orwin's lab and research in nanotechnology/materials in Dr. Joan Redwing's lab. I have a provisional patent in collaboration with City of Hope and Harvey Mudd College for a novel artificial urinary sphincter produced in 2014-1016.
My non-technical interests are reading, running, soccer, and travel.
