2017-Present. Currently, I am a Co-Founder of Cresta, an enterprise AI startup with a mission of building AI coaches (using NLP & RL) designed to turn normal sales agents into experts very quickly, by coaching them on what to do and say as they're speaking with customers.
2012-2018. Previously, I was a Stanford University PhD student in the Artificial Intelligence Lab of Computer Science, advised by Sebastian Thrun. My research focus at the time was in deep learning and computer vision, and my preferred application domain was healthcare. Notably, my colleagues and I showed that computer vision algorithms could match the performance of dermatologists at classifying skin cancer from images. Our work has made the cover of Nature, as well as Cell, and Nature Medicine. My work spans dermatology, drug screening, neuroscience, and psychiatry. I have interned at Google, Sandia National Labs, and GE Healthcare.
2007-2011. 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.
