Current Programs and Projects:
My projects create the educational methods and data tools needed to enable technology innovation.
A framework and technical course at UC Berkeley that teaches students to use foundational mathematical concepts and current computer science tools to create data-related applications and systems for real-world problems.
This program is the management track for Silicon Valley. The program builds upon the core technical skills of managers, engineers, and scientists; and provides breadth, strategy, market focus, operations, and communication skills for engineering leaders to be able to take larger roles within innovative companies.
A data-analytic approach to measuring innovation mindset and innovation culture inside companies.
