About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the NYU Visualization and Data Analytics Research (VIDA) Center, advised by Prof. Guido Gerig. My research heavily lies at the intersection of computer vision, deep learning, and medical image analysis, where I design advanced deep learning algorithms with a primary application on medical images such as structural MRI, diffusion MRI, and OCT.
