I love making cool stuff that solves problems. Right now, I'm writing code at a DeFi company and studying electrical engineering & computer science at UC Berkeley. 📍 Dallas → Toledo → Shanghai → 🏠 Los Angeles → 🐻 Berkeley 🎓 CVHS '20 → Cal '24
I took a gap year to build / work:
- founding engineer at Simplify (YC W21), which helps people discover jobs and internships on its web platform, then 1-click apply using its auto-filling browser extension
- founding engineer at a DeFi (Decentralized Finance) lending platform with novel capital efficiency mechanisms that achieved over $850 million in user deposits and became one of the top 50 protocols in all of DeFi by TVL (total value locked).
- built a few projects ⬇️
Developed a browser extension to highlight fake news and political bias that won the HackUCI hackathon
Converted a Bootstrap theme into a Jekyll theme with over 15k downloads
Started a local community movement to address the PPE shortage at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Built a script to generate the perfect stack of face shields for any 3D printer
Created a tool that converts STL files into OpenSCAD modules with ease
Experimented with statistical arbitrage through correlated pairs trading
Implemented a classification algorithm in assembly language to read pictures of handwritten numbers
Reverse engineered Twitter’s internal GraphQL API to scrape profile data
Built this site with Next.js & Notion
