About me

Medical Student

As an MD candidate at The University of Arizona College of Medicine Tucson, I am learning not only about human physiology and disease, but also the limits to which our current system can provide solutions.

Medical Researcher

I am currently performing research in the fields of Medical Imaging and Radiation Oncology to improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients with intracranial tumors and stroke.

Healthcare Technologist

I am a life-long technology enthusiast, and I love to dream up new ideas and create solutions to healthcare problems using the latest in technology.
