About me

I am a PhD candidate in the Applied Optimization Lab at the University of Toronto. My research interests lie at the interesction of optimization, machine learning, and healthcare delivery. I am especially interested in 1) optimizing healthcare systems and integrating emerging technologies into current practices, and 2) developing and establishing artificial intelligence approaches to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients.

My current research focuses on improving cardiac arrest outcomes through the development of novel optimization and machine learning frameworks that rigorously assess and improve automated external defibrillator deployment strategies. This work is conducted in collaboration with St. Michael’s Hospital (Toronto, Canada), and Gentofte Hospital (Copenhagen, Denmark).
