I was born in Kolkata, India, and spent my early childhood in Thailand and Vietnam before settling in Los Angeles. Excited by neurotechnology, I pursued a BS in Biomedical Engineering and Applied Mathematics & Statistics at Johns Hopkins University with a joint focus in computational neuroscience. My goal is to derive life-saving insight from the vast data collected in the treatment of severe brain injury. During my PhD, I aim to develop pattern recognition algorithms that prioritise traumatic brain injury patient information, deliver precise prognoses and visualise interpretable features to inform real-time decision making. Upon integration into bedside monitors of the neurosciences critical care unit, this system would enable the development of evidence-supported treatment plans catered to each patient's needs. In turn, I hope this work leads to improved clinical outcomes, greater autonomy for brain injury patient families and improved access to neurocritical care in remote areas. I am very excited to join the Gates Cambridge community! The lifelong friendships I will build with future leaders across disciplinary and political boundaries will enhance the global impact of my work while enriching my world view.
