I am a MD-PhD candidate working with Isaac Kohane (Harvard DBMI) and Peter Szolovits (MIT CSAIL). My research centers on biomedical applications of machine learning, which has allowed me to participate in a range of really fun projects leveraging medical images, medical text, EHR and claims data, and various 'omics.
In addition to my research, I am very involved in the Hydrocephalus community by way of Team Hydro, a non-profit organization that my family and I started to raise money and awareness for the condition in honor of my sister, Kate. I also do consulting work as a data scientist and deep learning engineer, with current and former clients including Flagship Pioneering and nference.
