I'm a PhD student in the Intelligent Systems Program - Biomedical Informatics track at the University of Pittsburgh.

My research interests are in medical imaging and clinical informatics, specifically in the application of AI techniques to the clinical practice.

I am currently working in the Intelligent Computing for Clinical Imaging (ICCI) Lab in the Department of Radiology at the University of Pittsburgh, supervised by Dr. Shandong Wu.

Current projects include

  • Radiomics and Deep Learning approaches to predict microvascular invasion (mVI) of HepatoCellular Carncinoma (HCC) from multiphase MRI

  • Investigating alternatives to the Model for End stage Liver Disease (MELD) for waitlist mortality prediction for patients waiting for a liver transplant.

  • Analysis of possible discriminant factors that distinguish between low-MELD patients who died within a year from listing for a liver transplant and patients who survived.
