Hi, I'm Justin!

Haleakala Summit

I study EECS at UC Berkeley, and some of my favorite things include architecture, design, sushi, and guitars.

I'm a member of Blueprint, a campus organization that works with nonprofits to build thoughtful web and mobile apps for social good.

This past summer I worked as a software engineering intern at Foursquare. There, I built a detailed data pipeline monitoring service and dashboard for all of engineering's Mongo and Databricks jobs, giving product and sales teams reliable SLAs for mission-critical clients.

In the past, I've also worked as a software engineering intern at Stripe, where I converted Stripe's $4B+ global Instant Payouts infrastructure volume to a new partner, saving over $1M+ annually and achieving nearly 100% uptime and stability for clients like Lyft, Instacart, Postmates, and Doordash.

Before that, I worked as an undergraduate researcher and systems administrator for Berkeley's Automation Lab, where I worked on an open-source platform to create responsive and engaging surveys for legislators and policy makers. In addition, I was a lead undergraduate researcher at the Berkeley Institute of Data Science, working on a project to use machine learning to identify invasive species, as well as a TA for Berkeley's Data Structures and Algorithms course.

Below are some of the personal blog posts that I have enjoyed writing:

And if you are at all interested, you can check out some songs I currently have stuck in my head.
