I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Cardiovascular Research Center in MGH, and the Research Laboratory for Electronics at MIT. My advisors are Aaron Aguirre, Brandon Westover, and Collin Stultz.

We develop machine & deep learning approaches for several projects:

  • Cardiologist-level interpretation of 12-lead ECGs
  • Inferrence of novel labels from 12-lead ECGs
  • Prediction of cardiac arrest or shock from ICU time series data
  • Estimation of outcomes after cardiac surgical procedures

I am also affiliated with the Healthcare Transformation Lab at MGH, which was created to improve the experience and value of health care by inspiring collaborative innovation and leveraging novel technologies.

I did my PhD at Georgia Tech. I worked on signal processing and machine learning applied to time series data from wearable devices. My advisors were Gari Clifford, Shamim Nemati, and Amit Shah.

Prior to my MD/PhD training, I studied Bioengineering at UCLA. I developed cellularized fibrin hydrogels for dermal wound healing, nanoparticles for imaging cells, and computational diffusion-reaction models of oxygen transport and cell growth. My advisors were Bill Tawil and Benjamin Wu.
