I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Biomedical Data Science at Stanford University, advised by Euan Ashley and Trevor Hastie. The overarching goal of my research is to create targeted interventions to aid medically vulnerable and marginalized populations to prevent poor health outcomes and the social determinants of these outcomes. My work centers around integrating data from disparate sources using a variety of quantitative approaches such as machine learning, simulations, and inference.

My research was generously funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship and Stanford Graduate Fellowship. Previously, I obtained my BS in Applied Mathematics at UCLA, where I worked with Xinshu (Grace) Xiao. I have also worked under the guidance of Rachel Martin, Carter Butts, and Pardis Sabeti, and as a machine learning scientist at Adobe Systems and Quora.
