I'm currently work as a Machine Learning Engineer at Airbnb, living in San Francisco, CA. I recently graduated from Stanford University with a combined Bachelors/Masters degree in Computer Science, and my main interests are focused on deep learning and large-scale data mining. I'm especially interested in applying the latest techniques in AI to tackle tough, interdisplinary problems in a variety of real-life contexts. I've worked on projects ranging from improving urban livibility through network analysis, uncovering trends in historical manuscript illustrations using neural networks, to predicting poverty metrics using road typology. I also like to build other cool stuff.
I am an explorer at heart. Traveling is one of my passions, and you can see some of my adventures(and misadventures) here. In my spare time, I also enjoy beaches, swimming near beaches, All-you-can-eat KBBQ, reading, and collecting subway maps.
