Starting Fall 2019, I will be an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Data Science and Electrical Engineering (by courtesy) at Stanford University. For the 2018-19 academic year, I will be visiting Harvard University as a TEAM postdoctoral fellow, focusing on the intersection of AI and healthcare and hosted by Susan Murphy, Todd Zickler and John Halamka.
I received my Ph.D. from Stanford University, where I was advised by Fei-Fei Li and Arnold Milstein. My research was broadly in the areas of computer vision, machine learning, and deep learning, with particular focus on video understanding and applications to healthcare.
I spent internships at Facebook AI Research in 2016 and Google Cloud AI in 2017. I also co-taught Stanford's CS231N Convolutional Neural Networks course in 2017 and 2018, with Justin Johnson and Fei-Fei Li.
Before starting my Ph.D., I received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 2010, and an M.S. in Electrical Engineering in 2013, both from Stanford. I also worked as a software engineer at Rockmelt (acquired by Yahoo) from 2009-2011.
I am a member of the Stanford Program in AI-Assisted Care (PAC), which is a collaboration between the Stanford AI Lab and Stanford Clinical Excellence Research Center that aims to use computer vision and machine learning to create AI-assisted smart healthcare spaces. My particular focus is on applying my research in video understanding and human action recognition towards hand hygiene-based infection control, recognition of clinical care activities, and continuous patient assessment in hospitals and assisted living facilities.
Our collaborators include Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, Stanford Health Care, and Intermountain Healthcare.
I enjoy helping future generations of researchers and engineers discover the exciting field of AI. I was a Research Instructor for SAILORS 2015, a 2-week summer program run by the AI Lab for 10th grade girls. In the past I've also co-organized Stanford's JETS Engineering Outreach Day for high school students, and been involved with programs including Exploring New Worlds, for elementary school students from underprivileged areas, and TechGyrls.
