I am a postdoctoral researcher with the Collaboratory Healthcare Effectiveness Research (CHER) group at IBM Research, Cambridge, MA. My research interests include blockchain technology, healthcare informatics, bioinformatics, and cloud computing. My work focuses on developing secure and robust platforms for managing and sharing sensitive data, particularly in healthcare and biomedical applications, using blockchain framework. I am also interested in ontologies and semantic reasoning for designing domain-specific knowledge representation and subsequent analysis.
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from University of Notre Dame, IN in 2017. My doctoral thesis focused on developing cloud computing-based infrastructures to expedite analysis and learning-based algorithms to improve quality of large-scale genomic data.
