He will be starting his M.Sc. in Computer Science at the University of Toronto in September 2019 under the supervision of Dr. Babak Taati and will be working on "Automated pain detection for older adults with dementia". His main research interests lie in using computer vision and machine learning in the medical/healthcare setting.
His previous projects include: "Creation of synthetic X-rays to train a CNN to detect lung cancer" and "Early stage lung cancer detection: Training a DCNN with patches from synthetic frontal chest radiographs" at the University of Toronto and St. Michael's Hospital. He is currently also working on "Early pediatric cancer detection from whole-body MRIs using GANs" at the Hospital for Sick Children and the Vector Institute.
His interest in Computer Science was sparked by some of Google's Educational Outreach programs when he lived in California. In his free time, he enjoys film, cooking, and tennis.
