MiscellaneousSelected as GreenG Working Group Co-chair
I have been selected as co-chair for the GreenG Working Group, which is part of the Atis NextG Alliance. The mission of the Green G Working Group is to position North America as the global leader in environmental sustainability in future generations of wireless technology or “Green G.” The work addresses reducing Next G technologies’ energy consumption and environmental impact. It involves assessing environmental impacts, such as water and materials consumption; exploring the use of renewable and/or ambient energy; and investigating how the ICT industry can help other related industries reduce their environmental footprint.

Your movements are being tracked down to the inch\! (Priceton "Cookies" Podcast Interview)
In 2019 I co-authored a blog post at freedom-to-tinker with Yan Shvartzshnaider (NYU Fellow) about the potential for detailed indoors location tracking using UWB technology that is included in new Apple iPhones and Cisco APs. We were interviewed a few month later by Aaron Nathans at the Princeton School of Engineering and Applied Sciences for their new podcast called “Cookies: Tech Security & Privacy”.

Electronic Music Composition
When I started at Stanford I took advantage of the world-renowned CCRMA (Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics). In 2017 I audited the Music 220a course, Fundamentals of Computer-Generated Sound. One of the assignments was to make a binaural sound play.

While at MIT I received a music minor and was also an active baritone saxophone player. I participated in the Festival Jazz Ensemble and Chamber Music Society Jazz Combos. I still play, but informally and less frequently. My senior year was the 50th anniversary celebration of the Jazz Ensemble, during which we debuted a couple of new compositions. One of them was From Forever by Chick Corea. We even did an official recording session at the WGBH studios in Boston, which you can listen to here (excerpt embedded below).
