Computer Science M.S. Student
School of Engineering
Stanford University



I am a graduate student at Stanford pursuing an M.S. in Computer Science supported by the NSF GRFP fellowship. I graduated from UC Irvine with a B.S. in Computer Science and minor in Statistics at the age of 18. Before that, I completed the first two years of my undergraduate education at Cal State LA before transferring to UC Irvine. I started my undergraduate education at the age of 14 and skipped high school through the CSULA Early Entrance Program. I am passionate about developing efficient and accurate AI-powered solutions to tangible problems.
