Hello! I am a first-year PhD student in Bioengineering at Stanford. My research and project interests lie at the intersection of bioengineering, computer science, and mechatronics, particularly in hands-on design and development of combined hardware and software tools and platforms. I aim to develop technologies for engineering of biology and/or improvement of healthcare to address unmet societal needs.
PhD in Bioengineering, started Fall 2018
MS in Computer Science, 2018
Specialization in Artificial Intelligence
BS in Bioengineering, 2016
Graduated Tau Beta Pi and with Distinction
