Research Interests

I am currently a PhD candidate at Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s Computational Imaging and Bioinformatics lab, and Maastricht University in the Netherlands. My research explores capturing tumor phenotypes through computer vision, machine learning and quantitative shape descriptors. I am also a research affiliate at MIT Media Lab’s Mediated Matter group working on mechanical characterizations of 3d printed materials. Previously a research fellow at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, I studied geometry-function relationships in biologicalcomposites and fabricated their synthetic analogs. I also worked at Brigham and Women’s hospital’s Surgical Planning Lab designing hardware for sizing heart valve prosthesis and image guided surgery. My interests include computational geometry, additive manufacturing and developing tools for the web. I received a Master’s degree in Design Technology from the Harvard Graduate School of Design with thesis in Material Analytics bridging solid mechanics and machine learning. With 4 years of industry experience as an architect, I have been involved with Foster + Partners in Beijing and Playze in Shanghai working on multiple construction projects. I also worked in New York, Dubai & Abu Dhabi with offices including Case, Aedas and BurtHill. I received a Bachelor of Architecture from the American University of Sharjah in 2009. On weekends, I enjoy flying single engine planes, practicing Mandarin and eating chocolate chip cookies
