About myself

I am a PhD Candidate in Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley, working with Professor Claire J. Tomlin in the Hybrid Systems Laboratory. Also, I am affiliated with the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research Lab (BAIR). I am interested in modeling and control of Cyber-Physical Systems using Applied Machine Learning and Statistical Learning. Please take a look at my projects and publications that are at the intersection of control theory, computer science, and economics, with applications to energy markets. While doing research at Berkeley, I have earned the following Master's degrees, all at UC Berkeley:

  • MA in Mathematics, May 2018

  • MS in Mechanical Engineering, May 2017

  • MS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS), May 2016

In the fall of 2016, I was a visiting student in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at MIT, supervised by Prof. Munther A. Dahleh and Dr. Mardavij Roozbehani.

A long time ago, I graduated from Technische Universit√§t M√ľnchen, Germany in 2011 with a major in Mechanical Engineering (with distinction).

In the summer of 2015, I worked as a Consulting Intern for Siemens AG in Munich, Germany.


A current copy of my resume is available here.

Current status

I am currently a Software Engineer Intern (Machine Learning) at Facebook's News Feed Discovery Team (May - July 2018) and anticipate to graduate with my PhD in December 2018.

Other activities

In my free time I enjoy doing triathlon and long-distance running, and I have achieved the title of Ironman in July 2017.
