I am a PhD student in the Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics (DCMB) at the University of Michigan (U-M). I am a member of the Machine Learning in Neurosurgery Laboratory, led by Dr. Todd Hollon. My research focuses on computer vision, machine learning, and biomedical data science. I am especially interested in representation learning and integrating observations from multiple modalities. Previously, I completed a joint BSE/MSE degree program in Computer Science and Engineering at U-M, where I also played tenor saxophone in the Michigan Marching Band.
