Hi there, I’m Alan.

Recruiter? Click here for my experience.

I’m an incoming Masters student at UC Berkeley studying computer science with a concentration in Data Science and Systems. I recently completed my undergrad in computer science and economics, with some data science in between, at UC Berkeley as well. I was born in Oregon but grew up in Shanghai.

Previously, I've interned as a data scientist, program manager, and software engineer at large firms like Microsoft and BCG, and startups like QuantCo and Seele. In the last two summers as a consultant, I worked on projects in pricing and personalization. I like to joke that I've gone through a lot of buzzwords during my internships: IoT, blockchain, big data, and AI.

In my free time, I enjoy exploring urban life (Shanghai has spoiled me), cute pictures of shiba inus, trying out new restaurants, and Japanese music. When I feel particularly creative, I try to take some photos and do some writing, which I like to think I'm not terrible at. Check out this article I wrote a while ago on how to drink crema tea.

Currently, I am:
