About me

I am currently a Master’s student in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, UCLA with passion to research, innovate and create. My primary research mission is to develop visual machines with exceptional sensing acuity and intelligence, with a specific interest in digital health and biomedical applications. I investigate topics in computer vision, computational imaging, optics & photonics, signal processing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.

Presently, I am conducting research at the Visual Machines Group (VMG) advised by Prof. Achuta Kamdabi. At VMG, my focus has been on developing remote vital sign monitoring technolgy for telemedicine application. Check out our most recent work on mitigating skin-tone bias for remote heart rate estimation here. This research is being done in colloboration with UCLA Health.

I obtained my B.S. in Physics with Cum Laude in 2019 from the Department of Physics & Astronomy, UCLA. During this time, I conducted research under the supervision of Prof. Pietro Musumeci. My focus was on investigating laser shaping tools for ultrafast electron photoinjectors. Check out our world’s first demonstration of electron ghost imaging here.

Beyond research and academia, I enjoy soccer (Chelsea F.C. fan), bouldering, video games, reading, and listening to music and podcasts. I also have a passion to teach and to share knowledge. I am currently planning on starting a podcast in 2021 interviewing graduate students and their experiences. Please email me if you’re interested in sharing your story!

This is the front page of a website that is powered by the academicpages template and hosted on GitHub pages. GitHub pages is a free service in which websites are built and hosted from code and data stored in a GitHub repository, automatically updating when a new commit is made to the respository. This template was forked from the Minimal Mistakes Jekyll Theme created by Michael Rose, and then extended to support the kinds of content that academics have: publications, talks, teaching, a portfolio, blog posts, and a dynamically-generated CV. You can fork this repository right now, modify the configuration and markdown files, add your own PDFs and other content, and have your own site for free, with no ads!
