I'm a Stanford University PhD student in the Artificial Intelligence Lab of Computer Science, advised by Sebastian Thrun. My research focus is in deep learning and computer vision, and my preferred application domain is healthcare. My work spans dermatology, drug screening, neuroscience, and psychiatry. I have interned at Google, Sandia National Labs, and GE Healthcare.

At UT-Austin, I double majored in Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Pure Mathematics. My research at the time was in metamaterials and invisibility cloaking as part of Andrea Alu's Metamaterials and Plasmonics Research Lab . Hook 'em horns.
