Mentors: Dr. Elazer Edelman and Dr. Tom Gleason
I have a background in Applied Mathematics, having completed an undergraduate degree in this field from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), followed by an MSc and PhD from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. My PhD research was in partnership with Boston Scientific Corporation and focused on developing mathematical models of fluid flows during kidney stone removal to understand and optimize ureteroscopic procedures.
My primary drive to study Applied Mathematics has always been its application within biology and medicine, and the complexities and essentiality of the cardiovascular system motivated me to apply my skillset to the field of cardiology. As a Postdoctoral Associate I am now working with the Edelman Lab at MIT and Gleason Lab at BWH to understand the intricate relationships between aorta geometry, hemodynamics, and aortic disease.
