I joined the GPMP in 2017 after graduating from the University of Alabama with a physics and mathematics double major. After discovering a passion for artificial intelligence and its applications in medical imaging, I joined the Giger Lab with research focus in computer-aided diagnosis and prognosis techniques for CT scan evaluation. Through this work, I was able to collaborate with expert scientists across the globe, including groups in China, New York, Argonne National Laboratory, and UChicago. I recently defended my dissertation at the beginning of November and plan to continue my work with the Giger Lab in the coming year. Outside of the lab, I enjoy watching and playing sports (football, soccer, and basketball), reading fantasy and sci-fi novels, and playing board games with friends.
