I am an Asistant Data Science Researcher (research faculty) jointly at Berkeley Seismology Lab and Berkeley Division of Data Sciences working between Earth Science and Data Science. Currently, I am a visiting researcher in the visiting faculty program at Google, a googler now, Mountain View.

My research lies at the intersection of seismology, civil engineering and data science. My research contributions have been to create the smartphone seismic network to monitor earthquake hazards using crowdsourcing and low-cost sensor network in urban environment, and to leverage machine learning and data science tools in different areas.
