I am a postdoctoral research fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology, working with Prof. Ghassan AlRegib. Recently, I have been working on healthcare and mobility projects with a focus on robustness and explainability. My background is at the intersection of signal processing, computer vision, and machine learning.
