About Me

I’m a first-year Electrical & Computer Engineering Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan, advised by Pei Zhang. I am passionate about building embedded sensing systems to solve unique environmental and community issues. I also love to use IoT for various smart home projects, design and print various 3D odds & ends, upcycle old devices into PCB art, and build iOS apps using fun API’s. I currently serve as the ‘Labz’ Department Editor for the student-led ACM XRDS Magazine (email me if you are interested in having your research highlighted!).

Previously, I got my B.Sc. in both Computer Science and Applied Math at Baldwin Wallace University where I was a member of the Mobile & IoT for Planet and Society (MOPS) Research Group under my advisor, Brian Krupp. (bonus: he created Ducky Weather, a simple yet elegant weather app that doesn’t sell your location data ☺ )

Research Interests

My undergraduate research focused on a low-cost, low-power solution for Air Quality sensing with Internet-of-Things (AQIoT), a mobile application to promote food recovery and reduce food waste, food insecurity, and student hunger on college campuses (Campus Plate), and combining machine learning models with audio/visual data to enhance a smart classroom sensing system (EduSense).
