I'm a first-year medical student at the University of Michigan, as part of the Medical Scientist Training Program. My research interests are broadly in deep learning applications for translational medicine and biomedical discovery.

I'm currently a student researcher in the Machine Learning in Neurosurgery Laboratory, advised by Dr. Todd Hollon. Previously, I worked on improving the accuracy of glioma surgery at the University of California San Francisco, co-supervised by Dr. Todd Hollon and Dr. Shawn Hervey-Jumper. I completed my undergrad in neuroscience at the University of Michigan, where I studied the pathophysiology of cerebrovascular disease under Dr. Michael Wang.

I'm also working on developing AI-assisted supplemental speech therapy at Phonica.
