At Mezli, we're building "auto-kitchens", fully autonomous shipping-container restaurants that serve great, affordable meals for takeout and delivery. While at Stanford, the three of us got fed up with having to either cook every day or spend $10 or more for healthy options like Chipotle, Sweetgreen, etc. So, we decided to democratize access to healthy, convenient food by building Mezli.
I'm a hardware hacker from Champaign, IL. I got my bachelors in ME at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and my PhD in robotics at Stanford. I'm very passionate about food and cooking, and getting to combine that with my love for hardware and robotics at Mezli!
I grew up writing video games and doing competitive math, then studied CS and statistics at UChicago. I then did a stint at Google as a product manager before going back to school for a PhD at Stanford, where I did research in ML and educational technology before dropping out to work on Mezli. Outside of work, I love reading, cooking, and outdoor sports.
Grew up in a small town in Massachusetts and graduated from a tiny highschool. As a teenager I fixed up my dad's old 1969 motorcycle and decided that I wanted to know more about how/why it worked rather than just how to fix it. Went to the UMass Amherst for Mechanical Engineering and fell in love with the romance of space and space travel. Went to Stanford for Aerospace and got my Masters. Worked on spacecraft for a few years but it was more The Office than Star Trek so I quit.
