Personal Statement:

Being an engineer at heart, and scientist by training, I constantly strive to bring cutting edge research to fruition in the form of robust, scalable and useful systems. At DBMI, I was presented with ample opportunities to develop and hone the skills required to carry out this endeavor with precision and rigor. Through many fruitful, cross-disciplinary collaborations I learned to navigate and meaningfully contribute to the complex space of healthcare R&D / technology. Everyone around me was an endless source of inspiration that prompted me to do good each day, and better the next. I feel fortunate to be a part of this incredible institution and will cherish the relationships I forged here.
