About Me

I am currently an M.D./Ph.D. student at Brown University.

My research interests include learning health systems, electronic health records (EHR), health information exchange, clinical decision support (CDS), standards and interoperability, machine learning, knowledge discovery, and physiologic reserve.


I received my Ph.D. in biomedical informatics and computational biology in May 2024 from Brown University, under the mentorship of Neil Sarkar and Liz Chen. My doctoral dissertation was titled “Physiologic Reserve and Modular Learning Health Systems.” My Ph.D. program was a joint program between the Brown Center for Biomedical Informatics (BCBI) and the Brown Center for Computational Molecular Biology (CCMB). During my Ph.D. studies, I was awarded the Julia Community Prize for my contributions to “community infrastructure and community building” in the Julia Programming Language project.

I received my Bachelor of Science in applied mathematics from Brown University. I graduated magna cum laude, and I was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. I also received the Rohn Truell Prize for special distinction in applied mathematics, awarded by Brown's Division of Applied Mathematics.
