Hi, my name is Charles, I’m currently a first-year MBA student at Chicago Booth and originally from the Bay Area. I attended the University of Michigan where I studied Computer Science and Mathematics. Prior to Booth, I was a Forward Deployed Software Engineer at Palantir Technologies based in Palo Alto, CA. I worked as Technical Lead under our Business Development umbrella on Palantir’s deployment projects for US and international commercial clients. I worked with client businesses in energy, cyber & physical security, transportation, consulting, manufacturing, and telecommunication.
I’ve been interning with Clear Ventures since the start of 2022. I am focused on our open source and AI+X investment portfolio, and perform research and portfolio services work.
In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, running, and learning about new products and technologies.
