Physicist | Computational Oncology + Deep Learning for MRI | Exploring the Intersection of Physics, Biology, & AI

Welcome to my personal website!


As of September 2022, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania, advised by Despina Kontos, Ph.D.

I graduated with my Ph.D. in Physics in 2022 from the University of Texas at Austin, where I was formally advised by Thomas Yankeelov, Ph.D. in the Center for Computational Oncology and informally advised by Jonathan Tamir, Ph.D. in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UT Austin. My dissertation work is titled "Toward advances in data acquisition and analysis for quantitative multi-contrast MRI," consisted of three topics. 
As a Postdoctoral Researcher at Penn, I am continuing to investigate AI for cancer imaging, specifically in the field of radiomics for breast cancer. 

Please feel free to explore my research and other information across this website! I am more than happy to answer questions and have discussions
