As a musician/engineer, I strive to push boundaries of the open web platform for music technology.

I studied with Jonathan Berger, Chris Chafe, and Ge Wang for my doctoral research at CCRMA between 2010 and 2014. After completing the doctoral thesis 《Collaborative Musicking on the Web》 in 2014, I joined Google Chrome where I currently leads various web music technology projects as a Technical Lead and Manager.

Outside of Google, I serve as a co-chair of W3C Audio Working Group driving a collective effort of multiple industry professionals to design advanced audio capabilities for the web platform. I also continue to engage with academia as an Adjunct Professor at CCRMA, Stanford university.
