I'm a fifth year PhD student studying Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. I am advised by Shwetak Patel in the Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) lab and Jacob O. Wobbrock in the Mobile + Accessible Design (MAD) Lab. My dissertation is on creating smartphone apps that systematize and automate the ways that doctors use their senses - sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste - to detect symptoms more accurately, precisely, and consistently. My graduate work has focused on diagnosing conditions that manifest through symptoms in the eye, including jaundice for pancreatic cancer and non-responsive pupils for traumatic brain injuries. My projects cover a wide array of skills, including machine learning, computer vision, signal processing, and user interface design. I completed my undergraduate studies at Duke University with a double major in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Through the Pratt Fellows program, I had the opportunity to research in the Systems Networking Research Group (SyNRG) led by Romit Roy Choudhury.
