Ph.D. Student in Bioengineering, admitted Autumn 2020
Masters Student in Bioengineering, admitted Winter 2021
BioI received my Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Industrial Design from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2020. During my time at Georgia Tech, I worked as an undergraduate researcher in Dr. Ajit Yoganathan's Cardiovascular Fluid Mechanics Lab. My project was focused on studying the contribution of foreign materials to thrombosis in transcatheter aortic valves using an in vitro flow loop. Beyond my research interests, I was also actively involved in the Society of Women Engineers, promoting outreach activities and creating mentorship opportunities for women in STEM.

BioI am interested in increasing access to medical technologies, particularly in low-resource settings. As a PhD student, I develop computational and bio-analytical technologies for early detection of disease, presently focusing on methods to increase sensitivity and multiplexing capabilities in diagnostic devices. Through developing these systems, I get to explore and play with subjects such as statistical modeling, image processing, manipulation and design of molecular systems, and optimization techniques. As a student, I have gotten to take classes ranging from many project based AI/ML computation courses to mathematics in linear dynamical systems to deep dives into chemistry of therapeutic drug development. As I wrap up my PhD, I look forward to bringing my wide base of experiences in both computational and biological realms towards breakthroughs in precision health and diagnostics amenable to lower resource settings at the last mile.
I also am always excited to teach and mentor, and have been involved with a myriad of opportunities including curriculum development and teaching AI/ML to high school students in US and India, K-12 STEM outreach in US, Scratch curriculum teaching to teachers in Taiwan, and graduate level courses such as Biological macromolecules to Stanford students! Im always happy to chat about how to best reach and inspire students and people of all ages, so please reach out!
