Currently working on: Developing AI-assisted tools to improve patient health outcomes.

Talk with me about:

  • Biology, Computer Science, Engineering, Health, Physics
  • Low-cost tech/engineering projects and demonstrations

My STEM Story: I was an early team member of Foldscope, a low-cost origami-based paper microscope that started out as a project in a Stanford Bioengineering lab and eventually became the flagship product of a startup. Through this project, I was able to interact with many institutions, educators, and hobbyists throughout the world and run microscopy workshops locally and internationally.

Past Projects: Foldscope (, Data Science Fellow at Insight Data Science, R&D Process Engineer at RheoSense
