I am a third year PhD student in Computer Science, Viterbi Dean's Doctoral Fellow, and Alfred E. Mann Innovation in Engineering Fellow at the University of Southern California. My research uses machine learning to extract insight from digital data in high impact domains, including but not limited to health care. I am advised by Prof. Yan Liu and a member of the Melady Lab.
I am also affiliated with the Laura P. and Leland K. Whittier Virtual Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (VPICU) at Children's Hospital, where I worked for three years as a data scientist. I help organize the annual Meaningful Use of Complex Medical Data (MUCMD) Symposium and am a co-founder of Podimetrics.
Even further back, I completed my BS in Symbolic Systems and MS in Computer Science at Stanford University. Go Cardinal.
