I am a PhD candidate at the Emory and Georgia Tech joint Biomedical Engineering graduate program.  I joined the Neuromechanics Lab in Fall 2018 and I am currently working on machine learning models to classify and predict gait cycle states.


My research will aim to improve the quality of life of injured veterans, the elderly, physically challenged and neurologically disabled populations. I have a strong interest in clinical translational research and my long-term career goal is to become an engineering professor and promote cultural diversity in STEM fields.
