In this blog post I detail my last three weeks at PingThings.
Edgar is a second year student at UC Berkeley majoring in Electric Engineering & Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, and Economics. Edgar was born in Spain on an island off the coast of Africa. He lived in Spain for eight years before moving to France and then America. Edgar is interested in combining his knowledge from computer science, economics, and math in new ways to solve complex problems such as climate change, automation, and human decision making. This summer he will be working at PingThings, a software company dedicated to storing, analyzing, and visualizing large sensor data from the electric grid. He will be working in the newly funded ARPA-E 3-year project as a machine learning intern helping design and develop new models to analyze data. Edgar is excited to put his skills to the test and apply his technical knowledge to solve real-world problems. During his free time Edgar enjoys hiking, travelling, and building things.
