Current healthcare systems do not fully utilize data acquired from wearable devices to make health-based observations. My research will bridge this gap by detecting risk factors from longitudinal datasets to prescreen patients who are at risk for coronary artery disease.

Outside of lab, I enjoy cooking, playing video games, running, and playing basketball. My favorite thing to do in Durham is explore dowtown for cool restaurants.
