Industry & Research Experience:

Tufts University (Medford, MA, USA)
Research Assistant Sep 2018 – July 2020
‣ Developed a fast algorithm for finding low-dimensional hierarchical structure in data using tools from probability, graph theory, linear algebra, and harmonic analysis.
‣ Implemented our novel clustering algorithm on three synthetic datasets and two hyperspectral images using MATLAB. Our algorithm was shown to extract multiple scales of latent structure in nonlinear, multimodal, and real-world datasets.
‣ Next steps include adapting our methodology for co-clustering: i.e., finding groups of samples that have similar feature expression.

Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA, USA)
Research Assistant Sep 2018 – September 2019
Worked on a multidisciplinary team of medical doctors, biomedical engineers, and mathematicians to build systems to monitor depth-of-consciousness in patients receiving anesthesia.

Engineered a novel EEG-based training paradigm for depth-of-consciousness monitoring using MATLAB. We demonstrated substantial improvement compared to current monitors at predicting ketamine-induced anesthesia.

Tufts University (Medford, MA, USA)
Research Assistant Sep 2017 – July 2018
‣ Derived a highly-successful model for wealth distributions to study how redistribution policy affects the distribution of the large wealth.
‣ Showed that there is an extreme sensitivity of the nature of large-wealth distributions to the minutiae of redistribution policy EU countries. This challenges the idea that wealth is distributed in any universal way across economies and borders.

The University of Rochester (Rochester, NY, USA)
Research Assistant (Spring 2016)
Worked under Michael Rizzo (Ph.D.). Modeled the expected effect of sexual orientation on a woman’s income through regression analysis on US Census, the National Survey of Health and Social Life, and General Social Survey data.

Infusion Global Partners (Wellesley, MA, USA)
Research Assistant (Summer 2015)
Engineered dynamic hedge fund indices that track and compare the top ten percent of earners within a given universe. IGP has used said data in a research paper examining the effect of size on hedge fund growth.

UC Berkeley Department of Economics (Berkeley, CA, USA)
Research Assistant (Summer 2015)
I extracted key features from Census and Bureau of Economic Analysis data and prepared data for regression analysis to study the impact of the trade deficit with China on transfer programs in the US.
