Research Interest:

 I am most generally interested in computational and physical science approaches to studying diseases. My previous research involved translational work studying circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in cancer patients. I primarily focused on prostate cancer and examined the effects of anti-cancer drugs on genotypic and phenotypic diversity in the population of a patient’s CTCs. 

My current interests lie in the application of machine learning to medical imaging data. Recent projects have included deep learning and radiomic analysis of chest x-rays in COVID-19 and the use of artificial intelligence to study radiotherapy in cancer. During my training I hope to develop computational techniques to make use of clinical and medical imaging data to improve patient outcomes.
