AI Research Assistant | Penn Medicine | Philadelphia, PA 12/18-06/19
Applied artificial intelligence (deep neural networks written with Python)
to clinical data with the aim of better informing medical decision making
and analyses, while also automating complex manual processes (e.g.
segmentation of echocardiograms and classification of MRI images).
Recruited, hired and trained a team of graduate computer scientists to
further the machine learning projects in the lab.
EOSDIS Project Intern | NASA | Greenbelt, MD 06/18-08/18
Designed and built a dataset recommendation engine, to help provide
scientists with better access to earth observational data, using
fundamental ML algorithms and data science techniques. Presented the
project findings at a national seminar that included other NASA centers, as
well as at a poster presentation session.
Software Engineer | Clutch | Philadelphia, PA 6/14 – 08/17
Built scalable, modular back-end and front-end applications (using Scala,
Java, JS) including a dynamically generated, self-updating data analysis
platform, and a highly resilient application for monitoring and processing
large volumes of data via a streaming connection to the Twitter firehose.
Operations Analyst | Kargo | New York, NY 6/12 – 4/13
Managed relationships with 3rd party ad tech companies and dramatically
increased the revenue from this stream. Performed various operations tasks
aimed at optimizing ad inventory usage and internal processes.
