I'm Eric, and I'm currently a Software Engineer at Airtable, based out of their NYC office.

Before joining Airtable, I was a Software Engineer at Dropbox NYC. I graduated from UC Berkeley in May 2016 with a degree in Electrial Engineering and Computer Sciences.

In my free time, I love to play soccer, run, travel, and explore new restaurants.

Learn Algebra

Learn Algebra and Learn Algebra 2 are educational Android Applications that provide lessons, randomly generated practice problems, quick notes, and statistics for any person trying to learn or refresh on Algebra. I worked on these applications as a part of ExEquals.


While I was a student at Berkeley, I had the opportunity to pursue undergraduate research. I investigated applications of AI techniques for heart-beat estimation. I had the fortune of being mentored by Professor Stuart Russell and Yusuf Erol, and of working closely with Hugh Chen. A paper detailing our work was published in Physiological Measurement, and an implementation of our methods can be found here.

I also spent a semester as an undergradute researcher in the NetSys Lab. I had the pleasure of working with Chang Lan on E2.
