BioResearch Area: Engineering Risk Analysis
Dissertation Title: Probabilistic Risk Analysis for Fake News
Administrative Associate, Bioengineering
BioI graduated from San Jose State University with a B.S. in Health Science with a focus in Health Service Administration. I've interned at the Stanford Prevention Research Center as a clinical researcher working with the Healthy Aging Studies (HAS) programs under Dr. Abby King. At Good Will of Silicon Valley, I had the opportunity to go back to my high school to teach children with special needs as a part-time teacher. Most recently, I've been working as a program associate with Stanford Medicine X under Dr. Larry Chu. Currently, I am supporting the Mobilize Center, OpenSim, and the NMBL lab under Dr. Scott Delp and the Altman lab which includes: Stanford-UCSF CERSI and the AI100 Project under Dr. Russ Altman.
Organizations that I am passionate about are Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), Autism Speaks community, and COUGH@SJSU. Each summer I dedicate a week to MDA Summer Camp to kids with muscular dystrophy and related muscle-debilitating diseases to have the "the best week of the year".
