A bit about me —

I’m an entrepreneur, now working on Mezli as cofounder and CEO. We’re a YC-backed startup building robot restaurants that make “Michelin-star food at McDonald’s prices.”

Before Mezli, I was at Stanford, where I worked on various subfields of AI and machine learning, initially with a focus on educational technology. My research interests included natural language processing and generative models. I dropped out of my PhD program to start Mezli.

Before Stanford, I was an Associate Product Manager at Google, a consultant in data science and product management, and a software engineer. I went to college at UChicago, where I earned a BS and MS in computer science and a minor in statistics.

Outside of work, I enjoy climbing, skiing, tennis, sailing, running, reading (check out my list of favorites!), and playing music.
