I am a master's student in the Data Science Graduate Program, and I am interested in working at the intersection of data science and health care to improve patient outcomes. Some of my favorite classes so far were Introduction to Data Science and Machine Learning I. Apart from my professional interests, I love exploring Washington DC to find the best coffees, pastries, and Mexican food!
