I am a PhD student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, studying with Professor Murat Arcak in the Networked Dynamical Systems Group, where I completed my MS in 2011. I am also currently with Bosch Energy Storage Solutions, where I develop control algorithms that enable integration of renewable and conventional energy sources with stationary energy storage systems.

I graduated with a BS in Applied Mathematics in 2008 from the University of California, Los Angeles. While at UCLA, I worked with Professor Vladimir Vassiliev in very high energy gamma-ray astronomy with the VERITAS group. I also participated in the UCLA IPAM RIPS summer program on a project sponsored by Los Alamos National Laboratory about cooperation among autonomous robots and occlusion video tracking. During 2008-2009, I was a software engineer at Northrop Grumman Information Systems, a leading provider of high quality C4ISR systems and software.
