Electrical and Computer Engineering

PhD Candidate, Electrical and Computer Engineering

I am a 4th year PhD Candidate at the Robotics and Controls Laboratory (RCL), in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), UBC. I received my BASc in 2014 in ECE and my MASc in 2016 from Biomedical Engineering (BMEG).

I have been involved in several projects at RCL, mainly revolving spine and heart imaging. My research involves developing artificial intelligence (AI)-based frameworks for analysis, interpretation, and enhancement of medical images of various modalities, including ultrasound, CT and MR. My PhD thesis focuses on developing machine learning solutions for analysis and understanding of echocardiographic (echo) images (ultrasound images of the heart), as part of the RCL's Information Fusion for Echo (INFUSE) project. Such AI-based solutions can assist and augment clinical decision making for disease diagnosis and management, streamline the clinical workflow, and subsequently increase the patient throughput in the healthcare system. My non-research/personal interests include mental health, expressive arts, education, and women's issues. I am also the President of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Student Association (ECEGSA).
