About me:

I am currently a research scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (starting Jan 11th 2021). Before this, I was an Assistant Researcher at Berkeley Seismology Lab working between Earth Science and Data Science. I was also a visiting researcher in the visiting faculty program at Google, Mountain View, to help build the Android Earthquake Alerting System.

My research lies at the intersection of seismology, civil engineering and data science. My research contributions are mostly in the domain of earthquake early warning and machine learning: I have been to create the smartphone seismic network to monitor earthquake hazards using crowdsourcing and low-cost sensor network in urban environment, and to leverage machine learning and data science tools in different areas.
