Ever since I was little, I've loved cars. I've been enthralled by their design, the cogs & the experience.

I am an automotive engineer and researcher located in Silicon Valley, working at the intersection of AI, User Interaction and Experience. I'm proud to have collaborated with some of the most talented designers, engineers, academics, philosophers and businessmen in the industry.
