I studied biomaterials and cancer cell biology during my B.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute from 2009-2013. Not long later, I shifted gears and joined the Medical Imaging and Informatics track at UCLA under the Bioengineering department. Predictably, I have an interest in the role of medical data in studying patients with cancer. I am particularly interested in studying datasets containing imaging and molecular data.
