About Me

I'm a physician and software developer experienced in creating applications leveraging a variety of technology including machine learning, natural language processing, wearables and IoT devices. I started coding at a young age and have always been passionate about innovation at the intersection of healthcare and technology.

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 completed a residency program in Internal Medicine from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. I'm currently a board-certified Internal Medicine physician with experience in primary care, hospital medicine, critical care, and telehealth.

Along the way, I've created many apps for healthcare and other industries, including early work integrating conversational AI and wearables with electronic health record systems. I've worked with machine learning applied to clinical use cases and co-founded a TechStars-backed health tech startup helping clinicians extract useful insights from free-text clinical documents.

Early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, I built and deployed solutions with teams in the US, UK, Sweden and Germany. I advised health tech startups in several countries through the European Commission's EUvsVirus program. I co-founded a social venture to help small businesses in the UK struggling due to economic lockdown, launched in partnership with several town councils and the University of Cambridge Judge Business School.
