Since 2018, I've been working with Dr. Jiook Cha and Dr. Vladimir Shapovalov as a member of the Math and Computer Science Research Track at Bronx Science. I have leveraged my passion for advanced math and machine learning to contribute to two really interesting research projects: 1) Create an algorithm to better analyze four-dimensional fRMI data and improve prescription efficacy for patients suffering from depression. 2) Conduct a data-driven assessment of the link between Ahi1 gene expression and stress sensitivity in humans in order to inform the design of better pharmacogenomic treatment for anxiety and mood-related disorders.
MIT Think 2019 – Over the fall semester of my junior year, I and a partner developed an award winning proposal for the MIT Think competition in which we outlined an AI-based approach to addressing the shortage of trained health professionals in developing countries. Our proposal, prototype, and presentation won the top semifinalist acknowledgement.
