About me

I’m a Ph.D. candidate at New York University, advised by Guido Gerig. I’m part of the multi-disciplinary Visualization, Imaging, and Data Analysis (VIDA) Center at NYU which provides a wonderful environment for both research and not losing your mind in gradschool.

Research Interests

My research primarily focuses on methods development for medical computer vision and healthcare applications - a field that fortunately offers both fun technicality and real-world relevance.

Particular topics of interest include equivariant networks, image synthesis, geometric deep learning, and deformable registration.
