PhD student, Berkeley Institute of Design.

HCI, digital fabrication, IoT.

Research

I build systems to reduce the barrier of entry to create physical artifacts. I am particularly interested in interactive device prototyping and the internet of things. My past project, Drill Sergeant, received some media attention (Fast Co, Digital Trends) and was a 2016 finalist for Fast Company Magazine's Innovation by Design awards.

I study with Prof. Björn Hartmann, continuing from my undergraduate work at UC Berkeley.
