I am currently a Master's student in the Computer Science program at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
I completed my Bachelor's in Psychobiology, minoring in Biomedical Research, at the University of California, Los Angeles. Here, I developed my passion for not only medicine and healthcare, but also devoting my career towards the overall social good.
I am passionate about the application of technology to improving individual lives, such as increased access to healthcare and the use of medical devices and/or software to enhance the quality of life.
In my free time, I like to kickbox, volunteer in my community, hang out at the beach, and explore local eateries.
