I am a sixth-year doctoral student in the Power Electronics Group in the EECS department at UC Berkeley. My advisor is Seth Sanders. I am graduating in May 2019. I received the M.S. degree from UC Berkeley in 2015 and the B.S. degree from Olin College of Engineering in 2012, all in electrical engineering. I have previously held R&D positions at Dialog Semiconductor, NREL, MIT, ABB Corporate Research, and NUS.
My research explores new and high impact power electronics circuits and systems. I work on applications for renewable energy, electrified transportation, miniaturized and on-chip power, wireless power transfer, and energy infrastructure and distribution. My research draws from an array of interdisciplinary domains, including decentralized optimization, networked control systems, and statistical signal processing.
