About

RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am a third-year Computer Science PhD student, 2020 NSF Graduate Research Fellow and Olive B. and Franklin C. Mac Krell Jefferson Fellow attending the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. I am advised by Dr. Lu Feng and Dr. Dave Evans in the Link Lab. My research is at the intersection of Healthcare, Computer Science and Cybersecurity; I am interested in the development of safe and secure Medical Cyber-Physical Systems using the application of Formal Methods. Specifically, I am developing privacy-preserving machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) techniques for clinical decision support systems.

Service

WORKSHOPS AT COMPUTERS4KIDS

A fellow CS PhD student and I are hosting weekly workshops at Computers4Kids, a local nonprofit serving low income 6th--12th graders that provides free mentoring and access to technology and STEAM projects. Each week we will guide students through various projects, such as temperature-changing lamps (using arduinos), building remote control cars from scratch, fun coding projects, cybersecurity and basic hacking camps, and wearable tech. I am really excited to be working with these brilliant students. I hope we can inspire them to dive into the wild, ultra-creative world of CS and Engineering!

JEFFERSON JOURNAL EDITOR

I am very excited to be an editor-in-chief for the newly revamped Jefferson Journal of Science and Culture. The interdisciplinary journal serves to provide a venue where scholars who are doing cross-discipline work can publish articles related to specific topics. The journal is part of the Jefferson Scholars Foundation, and I am helping set up and manage the journal, from setting up the website, planning out our call for submissions, writing submission guidelines, picking journal themes, and more. I will also be planning a conference for the accepted submissions to present their work in October. More information about the journal is available via our website: http://journals.sfu.ca/jjsc/index.php/journal/index

COMPUTER SCIENCE GRADUATE STUDENT GROUP (CSGSG) REPRESENTATIVE

I am Chair of the Computer Science Graduate Student Group (CSGSG), equivalent to a graduate student council, that acts as the liaison between faculty and students. The committee hosts student events to help with students knowing each other, and represents the CS student body at faculty meetings and for departmental decisions. I love the CS department, and I hope to act as a useful representative and help improve and support the program and students here.

 

I'd love to hear from you.
