About Me: 

I graduated from Arizona State University in 2017. In between undergrad and medical school, I spent two years at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda doing x-ray imaging research. My focus was on designing new imaging modalities including a "zoomed-in" CT scan protocol, contact detector inserts for clinical CT scanners, and a tabletop histology scanner.

 I enjoy combat sports, hiking, programming, reading, and procrastinating.
