Calvin Yu

Master's Student in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science | University of California, Berkeley


I am a master’s student at UC Berkeley, majoring in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. During the past summer, I interned as a Software Development Engineer in the PACMAN (Persistent and Capacity Management) team at Amazon, where I worked on a new capacity management system for the fulfillment system of Amazon.

I graduated from the University of Toronto in June 2023, specializing in Computer Science. During my undergraduate studies, I worked at the Pair Lab under the supervision of Professor Animesh Garg, where I researched robotic manipulation and surgical robotics. I also worked with Professor Chen Feng at the AI4CE Lab, where I researched semantic scene completion for autonomous vehicles. Finally, as a Perception Pipeline Engineer, I developed the perception pipelines and algorithms for aUToronto’s next-generation autonomous vehicle, Artemis.

Over the past years, I have had the opportunity to work with many bright minds in some amazing roles. During Summer 2022, I worked at Supply Chain Optimization Technologies(SCOT) at Amazon as a Software Development Engineer Intern to build a self-service tool to automate the update of properties for nodes in Amazon’s fulfillment network, which is being actively used by customers and engineers to save hours of work for each request. From May 2021 to May 2022, I was also a software engineer intern at Kijiji Canada, the largest classifieds website in Canada, where I delivered features such as mark as sold and aided the company’s cloud transformation. Last but not least, I served as a Teaching Assistant at the University of Toronto, where I led labs, held office hours, and marked exams for CSC148 in the Winter 2021 and the Winter 2023 semesters.
