I’m a PhD student at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. My primary research interest is in developing explainable statistical techniques that help clinicians interpret and act on medical data.

To that end, I work in the Medical Vision Group with Polina Golland. I’m also a student researcher in the medical subdivision of Google Brain.

Previously, I did my undergrad in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at MIT and did research internships at IBM Research and Draper.

I also started Blueprint and served as the president of MIT HKN.
