MD-PhD Candidate
Harvard Medical School, MIT

I am medical student in the Harvard-MIT HST program. Recently, I also completed my PhD under the direction of 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 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 clients including tech, biotech, and pharmaceutical companies.

For a more formal account of my academic work, see my Curriculum Vitae or Google Scholar.
