Gabe Fierro

This is a picture of Gabe, but you knew that, didn't you?

I am a 6th year PhD student at UC Berkeley advised by Professor David Culler on the Buildings, Energy and Transportation Systems project in conjunction with the RISE lab. I received my undergraduate degree in EECS from UC Berkeley and worked on the LoCal project. I work on developing infrastructure for smarter buildings.
