Before graduate school I worked as an Image Analyst at Invicro, a global research partner to pharmaceutical, biotech, and contract research organizations, aiming to enhance drug discovery and development. I also participated in a co-op at Biogen in Late Discovery Imaging to gain industry experience in drug development.
My general research interests are in anything to do with multimodal imaging and image analysis. Outside of academia, I enjoy hosting house concerts, coffee dates with friends, going on walks, watching films, and reading books.
