About Me:
I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia.  After high school, I was accepted into a six-year program leading to an MD in the School of Medicine at the University of New South Wales.  Upon acceptance into Stanford University, I withdrew from medical school in Australia and moved across the Pacific to pursue a broad science education.
I earned an honors degree in Computer Science from Stanford while fulfilling the pre-med requirements.   After graduating, I worked full-time for three years as a Clinical Research Coordinator studying the brain mechanisms underlying chronic pain at the Systems Neuroscience and Pain Lab in the Stanford School of Medicine.
Currently I am pursuing my research interests in the intersection of medicine and computer science with a particular focus on neuroscience as a member of the Class of 2017 in the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.
Research Interests:
I have been interested in mathematics, computing and medicine since high school.  The confluence of my development of these interests at Stanford is reflected in my Computer Science honors thesis that used machine learning to discriminate brain activation signatures in different types of pain.
