Hi! I'm a postdoc at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology working with Prof. Marzyeh Ghassemi. My research spans machine learning, data mining, and applications to improve healthcare.

I received my PhD in Data Science from WPI in 2021, where I was a GAANN Fellow advised by Professors Elke Rundensteiner and Xiangnan Kong.

I am on the academic job market for tenure-track positions in CS/ECE/Data Science

Research

I'm making machine learning and data mining methods deployable in complex, time-varying environments. I focus on core problems in time series and natural language data that arise in healthcare, where:

The projects that excite me the most: (1) robustly model dynamic environments through time series, (2) prevent perpetuating bias via machine learning and/or (3) have impact through real-world deployment.

Misc

Outside of research, I enjoy bouldering, biking, books (science fiction/science fact), birding, juggling, vegan cooking, and guitar. I also spent a summer living at BioSphere 2 in rural Arizona.
