About


I am a second year PhD student at MIT CSAIL, advised by David Sontag in the Clinical Machine Learning group.

In my research, I tackle various challenges within clinical natural language processing, including:

Previously, I earned a BS and MS in Computer Science at Stanford. While there, I researched in the SNAP Group under Jure Leskovec and Marinka Zitnik, where I used biological networks to predict disease-gene associations and polypharmacy side effects. I've also had internship stints at Google (2015, 2017) and Flatiron Health (2016, 2018).

I am passionate about issues surrounding diversity in computer science. I recently completed my term as an officer for GW6 (Graduate Women in Course 6 at MIT), and I'm on the Dean of Engineering's graduate advisory committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
