Internship Date: June 2018 - September 2018
I worked with the Release to Production (RTP) team at Facebook
to work on their automated testing tool for their next generation hardware pieces. My
primary contributions were the automated updates of test results that saved several hours
for every engineer on the team, and the enabling of a more logical grouping of tests and
hardware pieces so that automated re-testing could be possible. I also integrated a more
polished method of reserving hardware so that the scare resources could be better shared
amongst the validation leads. As a side project, I also worked on the validation portal to
fix inconsistencies in the UI, backend, and database, and speed up queries. In the end, I
was able to fix most of the bugs in the portal and speed up load times by more than 50%!
Internship Date: June 2017 - September 2017
I worked with a team to create the infrastructure to monitor data
from the routers and visualize the data to gain valuable business analytics. For the
infrastructure, we used Docker containers and Apache Flume to create a flow of data from
the Hubs to our local lab environment. We then automated the infrastructure deployment and
AWS/VMware VM provisioning process with Ansible in order for it to be generalized for any
future deployments. Once production data was being captured, we processed the Spark streams
with the data using Scala and stored the processed data into OpenTSDB. We then graphed data
using Grafana to let business leaders make critical decisions of the Arclight network.
Internship Date: June 2016 - August 2016
I primarily worked on the company's Master Data Management (MDM)
product to tailor it to individual customers' needs. This responsibility included
developing and modifying features in the API (Java, Cassandra, Elasticsearch), UI
(Qooxdoo), and metadata configurations (JSON). In addition, I also found and fixed several
major bugs within the product's code base before the next version of the API and UI went
live. Throughout the internship, I used Git extensively to manage my workflow and
simultaneously work on the code with developers from around the world, and gained a
critical understanding of both SaaS and PaaS models of service and how either can be
beneficial for a company's future.
Internship Date: June 2014 - August 2014
I created a website for one of the company’s products and
researched various markets and business opportunities for the company’s future. I also
tested product software for accuracy and competency for market use. I also concurrently
interned at SmartMonitor, splitting my time according to each of the companies' needs.
Internship Date: June 2014 - August 2014
I tested the smartwatch the company produced and assisted in
designing and pitching a new product idea to Genentech. Furthermore, I also designed a new
prototype product for the company and created a business plan analyzing its potential
market and opportunities. I also concurrently interned at IntelliVision, splitting my time
according to each of the companies' needs.

I am currently one of the Project Managers and oversee all the
projects and manage the IEEE lab. Previously I was one of the workshops managers and
various workshops for members to attend during the school year. Before that, I was one of
the co-leads for OPS, Open Project Space, a program where we teach first year students
about microcontrollers like the Arduino Nano and create various circuitry related projects.
The goal is to spark interest in electrical engineering while giving the opportunity to
have a hands-on experience. Additionally, I am also part of the MicroMouse project where we
build an autonomous maze solving robot. Competition is held during May and last year, we
were able to take 2nd place at the UCLA and UCSD competitions!

Active Membership: September 2015 - June 2017
In UCLA's Super-Mileage Vechicle organization, I am part of both
the "Hardware" and "Software" sub-groups for the Electric Vehicle team and also help
co-lead these teams. In this group, we learn about the various systems and components that
make up an electric vehicle and then design and test these components (such as making sure
a Brushless DC motor spins at the most efficient rate, or creating the lights and horn for
the vehicle) so that the vehicle can compete at the Shell Eco-Marathon competition.
