My current work investigates the application of artificial intelligence and development of machine learning techniques to accelerate high-fidelity image acquisition and reconstruction for imaging modalities across the physical and life sciences.

I'm a postdoctoral research fellow in Radiology at Harvard Medical School and in Physics at Harvard University, based at the A.A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital, in Prof. Matthew Rosen's Low-Field Imaging group and the Center for Machine Learning. I received my S.B. and M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT where my research at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) introduced ultrasonic sensing for multimodal speech recognition for robust performance in noisy environments. I received my Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at MIT through the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, where my graduate research focused on the development of switchable MRI contrast for molecular imaging to significantly boost imaging sensitivity of injectable contrast agents. More recently, I've led research projects rethinking conventional image acquisition and reconstruction techniques.  Our recent AUTOMAP work published in Nature replaces the typical handcrafted signal processing pipeline with a fully automated deep learning approach, resulting in significantly improved images even with rapidly scanned low-quality raw data.
