I am a Ph.D. student at the AI Lab at Brown University, advised by Professor Carsten Eickhoff and Professor Ritambhara Singh. I am also an ACM SIGHPC Fellow. I am currently interested in applying information retrieval and natural language processing to improve machine learning with limited labeled data in various domains, including healthcare.

Prior to my graduate studies at Brown, I obtained a Master’s degree in computer science from the University of Cape Town, South Africa (UCT). At UCT, I worked with Professor Geoff Nitschke on applying evolutionary algorithms to optimize machine learning for predictive analysis.
