Teaching and Service

Graduate Student Instructor, EE16A Fall 2015: Designing Information Devices and Systems

Instructors: Anant Sahai and Ali Niknejad

I was a graduate student instructor (GSI) for EE16A in Fall 2015. EE16A is an introductory course to electrical engineering that teaches students fundamental concepts in linear algebra, circuits and systems, and motivates these concepts through applications. In Fall 2015, the course was a semester old and was being scaled up to full class size for the first time. My responsibilities included teaching discussion sections, holding office hours, and helping develop content for the course in the form of homeworks, discussion worksheets and exams.

Our instructions team won the EECS Outstanding Course Development Award for working on this course. Thanks to my fellow GSIs and UGSIs as well as instructors for their guidance, support and the wonderful memories. :)

Undergraduate Mentoring

I mentored Mitas Ray through the academic year of 2017. He just graduated from Berkeley and is joining University of Washington in the fall for a PhD. Congratulations, Mitas!


It was an honor to have served as Women in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering (WICSE)’s co-president for the academic year 2016-2017, and outreach chair for the academic year 2015-2016. As part of being co-presidents, we organized the Berkeley-Stanford Research meetup for women in April 2017.

I was also an Electrical Engineering Graduate Students’ Association (EEGSA) officer for the academic year 2015-2016 as the student ombudsperson for the preliminary exam
