I am an AI researcher with appointments in the Geisel School of Medicine and Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. I work on AI-powered imaging systems for real-time treatment guidance in radiotherapy, surgery, and dermatology applications. I believe that Data-centric AI is the most promising pathway to achieve AI adoption in medicine. I seek to deeply understand how data (particularly image/video) informs decision making in both high- and low-resource healthcare settings and where AI-powered tools can be most transformative. I bridge multiple domains of engineering to bring sensors, data, ML and clincians together in conducting my research at the Dartmouth Cancer Center.

Prior to joining Dartmouth, I completed my PhD in Bioengineering under the mentorship of Rebecca Richards-Kortum at Rice University. At Rice, I led efforts to transform cervical cancer prevention using point-of-care imaging technologies in medically underserved populations. I was fortunate to spend time working in three different cancer centers in Brazil, El Salvador, and Mozambique. Prior to my work at Rice, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Biophysics magna cum laude from Brigham Young University.
