Hey! I'm Varun 👋

I'm a sophomore at Stanford studying electrical engineering and math. I work on problems at the intersection of hardware and software ⚡

This winter, I'm working on a variety of projects from home, from automating circuit design with machine learning to democratizing mobile health. I'll also be taking courses on circuits, signals & systems, probability, economics, and industrial sketching. 📚

A BIT MORE ABOUT ME 👨‍💻

I've spent my entire life in the Bay Area. I grew up in Cupertino and I'm a proud Eagle Scout. I enjoy reading, working out, photography, and picking up new skills (currently on a bit of a cooking whim). I like collecting lapel pins, flannels, and sneakers 👟

On the whole, I'm interested in embedded systems, product design, philosophy, and technology applications in high-impact verticals (construction, finance, space, climate change, healthcare, and security, to name a few) 🚀

BUILDING (AND BREAKING) STUFF 🛠

I'm keeping myself busy while sheltering-in-place this pandemic by working on several projects.

I've built a couple of things in the past as well, mostly in high school.


CAFFIENE-FUELED SLEEPLESS NIGHTS ☕️

I like school — a lot! That's likely a product of my joy for learning things. Unfortunately, this doesn't leave much time for sleep. Here are some I've enjoyed.
