## About me

I'm a Ph.D. student working with Polina Golland in the Medical Vision Group in CSAIL. My research interests are in machine learning and artificial intelligence; in particular I'm working on applications of these to problems in medical imaging. I'm currently funded by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

I was an undergraduate in EECS at UC Berkeley. While I was there I worked with Stan Klein's Visual Processing Lab on signal processing in vision science, and with Dan Garcia and Brian Harvey on a curriculum development project involving parallelism in introductory computer science courses.

## Teaching

At MIT:- I taught a short course titled 6.S085, Statistics for Research Projects in January 2012 (with my colleague Finale Doshi-Velez), January 2013, and January 2014 (with my colleague George Chen).
- In 2013, I received the Frederick C. Hennie III Teaching Award, awarded to a few graduate students in the department each year for teaching excellence.
- I was a TA for 6.s080: Introduction to Inference in Fall 2012. This was a brand-new undergraduate course on inference! Along with my fellow TAs, George Chen and Gauri Joshi, we made Khan Academy-inspired videos summarizing recitation topics. If you're at MIT, you can view my teaching ratings. I also wrote up some notes on course topics:
- I was a TA for 6.438: Algorithms for Inference in Fall 2010. If you're at MIT, you can view my teaching ratings.
- I was a TA for 6.041: Probabilistic Systems Analysis and Applied Probability in Fall 2008. If you're at MIT, you can view my teaching ratings.

- In 2008, I received the Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award, granted to several TAs within each department across UC Berkeley each year. The same year, I received the EECS Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award, granted to one or two outstanding TAs within the department each year.
- I was a TA for CS61A: Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, an introductory computer science class, from Summer 2006 to Spring 2008. You can see my teaching ratings.
