I am a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UT Austin and a part of Prof. Mia K. Markey’s Biomedical Informatics Lab (BMIL). My research interests are at the intersections of multimedia (text, image, video) processing, online information-seeking behavior, sensemaking, and clinical decision-making. Driven by my interdisciplinary background, I am passionate about integrating machine learning approaches in these spaces to help users make sense of the health-related information they collect online.

As part of BMIL, I collaborate with the multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional MBRRP team at MD Anderson Cancer Center. I gratefully acknowledge the support I have received this year from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32 Fellowship and the Thrust 2000 – William H. Cunningham Endowed Graduate Fellowship in Engineering.

Previously, I received my bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from UC Berkeley and have had the opportunity to intern at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and Schlumberger.
