I work on machine learning applications motivated in healthcare and sciences. Some of my work pertains to improving speech recognition systems for users with impaired speech, others to transfer learning for bio/medical data (e.g. detecting diabetic retinopathy, breast cancer), and I have also developed methods to interpret such vision/audio models (model explanation) for medical applications. During my graduate studies, I applied natural language processing and computer vision techniques to generate descriptions of events depicted in videos and images. I am a key contributor to a number of works featuring in the Healed through A.I. documentary. Please refer to my website ( for more information and my Google Scholar page for an up-to-date list of my publications.
