About Me

Hiya! I'm Kanaad. I'm an engineer at Waymo on the Behavior Prediction team. I completed my undergrad and master’s at the University of California, Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

Previously, I interned at Tesla Autopilot, where I worked on data driven prediction models and at Lyft Level 5, where I developed novel LiDAR clustering techniques.

At Berkeley, I was advised by Prof. Alex Bayen investigating the applications of reinforcement learning to teams of autonomous vehicles, working on Flow. In May 2018, I was awarded the Arthur M. Hopkin Award.

I’m passionate about all sorts of transportation: planes, trains, buses, cars, bicycles, scooters, skateboards (you name it!). I spend my free time swimming, cycling, drinking coffee, and watching the NBA or college football.

Go bears! 🐻
