About Me

I'm a board-certified Internal Medicine physician and software developer who has been passionate about coding since I was a kid.

I recieved my bachelors degree from Cornell University where I also co-founded the largest student media group, and my MD from Albany Medical College where I did research in nanomedicine. I recently graduated from a residency program in Internal Medicine from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Along the way, I've been developing apps for healthcare and other industries involving a variety of technology including machine learning, natural language processing, wearables and sensors. I did early work in integrating conversational AI and data from wearables with electronic health records. I co-founded a TechStars-backed health tech startup extracting insights from free-text clinical documents.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I've built and deployed solutions with teams in the US, UK, Sweden and Germany. I also co-founded a startup to help struggling small businesses which is now supported by the University of Cambridge (UK) Judge Business School's Accelerate entrepreneurship program.
