Short Bio

I am a research scientist in the Electrical Engineering and Radiology Departments, Stanford University. Prior to that I was a postodctoral research fellow at Stanford, and a Visiting Scholar with the EECS Dept. and the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) at UC Berkeley. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and a Ph.D. minor in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

The overarching theme of my research is on algorithms, analysis, and applications of (deep) machine learning and statistical signal processing tools for data science and artificial intelligence (AI). Armed with a multidisciplinary training at the intersecion of electrical engineering, computer science, and medicine, my vision is to harness the power of artificial intelligence and big data for developing computational imaging analytics that positively impact patient care.
