I am a Ph.D. Student in Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington, where I work in the Computer Science & Engineering Wireless and Mobile Systems Lab. I received a Bachelors in Electrical Enginnering and a Bachelors in Computer Engineering in 2013, also from the University of Washington. In 2013, I completed a 12 month internship at Xilinx Inc. in San Jose, CA.
My research interests revolve around ultra-low-power embedded systems and the devices and techniques required to expand their role in the computing world. This includes topics such as low-power sensing, RF power harvesting, battery-free platforms, and ultra-low-power wireless communication.
On a more personal note, I am a member of the UW Judo Club holding the rank of ikkyū; I am an Eagle Scout and avid outdoorsman (the Pacific Northwest has beautiful hiking trails); and recently I received my Ham Radio General License (KG7NVS).
