ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
UCLA C/O 2021

I am a second year Electrical Engineering major at UCLA currently looking for a summer internship involving front/backend development, design, or testing. I have experience in C++, Matlab, and HTML/CSS. Click here for my resume or keep scrolling for an overview of my work!

June - August 2018

Research Under
ARNI Lab

In the ARNI (Algorithmic Research in Network Information flow) Lab under Professor Christina Fragouli, I studied the secure capacity of a specific type of wireless network called a 1-2-1 network. I was able to use MATLAB to simulate different schemes in choosing communication paths and how these schemes affected the capacity. I was able to present my research at the Annual NSF REU Meeting of the Minds and at the Summer Undergraduate Scholars Program Poster Symposium, where I and my research partner won "Best Group Poster".

Line Guided
Arduino Car

Within our Introduction to Electrical Engineering (ECE3) class, I and a partner breadboarded and coded an Arduino car capable of sensing and following a black line on the white floor. The car used an IR transmitter and reciever system that conveyed readings to the Arduino which in turn instructed the motors to run a certain speed to ensure the car stayed on the line.

Resident Assistant

As a Resident Assistant, I ensure the mental and physical well-being of about 100 residents and uphold the university housing standards while also building a sense of community on my floor and in the building as a whole.

March - June 2018

Maze-Solving
Aruduino Car

For IEEE Open Project Space, I worked with two others to breadboard, solder, and code a car capable of solving a maze. This car again utilized an IR transmitter and reciever system as well as an H bridge to navigate walls of a maze- turning and going straight when appropriate.

Chetyris

Through my Introduction to Computer Science II class, I coded a version of Tetris in C++ that involved the same pieces as well as a few additional ones that affected pieces on the entire board. Through coding this, I utilized my knowledge of data structures, inheritance, and recursion.

PACURH

As Spirit Chair for the PACURH (Pacific Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls) 2018 Regional Leadership Conference, I organized the spirit point system and kept track of over 40 school delegations. In addition, I worked with the other 12 conference chairs to organize various aspects of the overall conference.

November 2018

Asepsis

As part of a 24 hours hackathon hosted by UCLA ACM, I worked in a team of four to create Asepsis, a site that informed people of the air quality levels at the various UC campuses. I contributed to the front end development of this site using HTML and CSS. This site was made in observance of the fires that have been ravanging California.

Just For Fun

Outside of all this, I enjoy dancing and, lately, I've been getting into making vlogs and designing using Adobe Illustrator (peep the site favicon).
