Biography: Hi, I'm Joseph :)

Born and raised in Southern California, I clearly love the sunshine. You'd be hard-pressed to find me in a bad mood. My awe of the iPhone drove me to pursue the study of Computer Science, particularly mobile and edge computing, which naturally landed me at NESL. Nowadays I concern myself with building high-quality distributed systems under the guidance of the awesome Prof. Srivastava. Whenever I'm not working, I'm probably climbing rocks, doing some yoga, playing tennis, reading, eating, or laughing.

I always enjoy an interesting conversation over a good cup of coffee -- feel free to reach out!
