  I previously worked at Tesla -- where I was automating manufacturing testing for Tesla PowerWall, PowerPack, and SuperCharger. I’m also a TEDx speaker on bias due to AI (especially for women and minorities) and on intelligent transportation. Alongside that, I'm a SXSW judge, Kairos Society fellow, Hackernoon top publisher, and earlier on, I co-founded a SpaceX Hyperloop team with schools like Cornell, Princeton, and UMichigan and our prototype placed top 10 internationally -- and was featured on CNN, The Verge, Wired, and CNBC. I'm a fellow of Kairos Society-- an elite club of founders that identify society’s most pressing challenges and build new solutions to address them (with mentors like Sir Richard Branson, Bill Clinton, and Hayden of the CIA). I was previously awarded the NSERC (NSF equivalent in Canada) Industrial Undergraduate Student Research Award, open-sourced a 3D-printed prosthetic for US veteran amputees, led a drone robotics team, and judged top robotics contests (SXSW, PennApps, Lego League). Lastly, I helped design an innovative electronic music instrument that was featured on CBC and DigitalTrends.
