I am a researcher at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), focusing on topics related to the integration of renewable resources into the electric grid.
I completed my PhD and MS in Mechanical Engineering at UC San Diego, where I was advised by Carlos F. M. Coimbra. Before that, I completed my BS in Mechanical Engineering at UC Merced, and participated in the UC LEADS and Cal NERDS summer research programs.
I am interested in machine learning, numerical optimization, and renewable energy systems. My doctoral work focused on data-driven forecasting methods for grid-connected solar power plants.
I previously taught ENG 10: Fundamentals of Engineering Applications (2016-2018), a hands-on course that provides students with an introduction to engineering mathematics and design. From Fall 2013 to Spring 2016, I was a TA for a freshmen engineering seminar (ENG 1-3: Orientation to Engineering I-III).
