Session Abstract – PMWC 2022 Silicon Valley

 Session Chair Profile

Ph.D., Postdoctoral Scholar, UCLA

Biography
I am a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, Los Angeles. My research has focused on the development and application of novel artificial intelligence and medical image analysis techniques in the detection, diagnosis, and staging of cancer disease. I received my master's and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering both from Carleton University in 2016 and 2020, where my Ph.D. work has been awarded the university medal for outstanding graduate work at the doctoral level. I then joined Johns Hopkins University as a postdoctoral scholar where I worked with colleagues in the Department of Radiation Oncology to design and implement AI-based methods for real-time MR-guided gynecologic cancer radiation therapy. I joined UCLA in September 2021. I have worked as an R&D engineer in the medical device industry for several years.
