I am a postdoctoral researcher with the Learning Health Systems group at IBM Research, Cambridge, MA. My areas of interest include blockchain technology, federated learning, healthcare informatics, bioinformatics, and distributed computing. My current research focuses on developing blockchain-based frameworks for managing and sharing sensitive data in healthcare and biomedical applications, particularly in multi-site clinical trials and IoT. I am also developing privacy-preserving federated learning models for detecting adverse drug reactions using linked health data, a collaboration with the Decentralized Information Group at CSAIL, MIT.
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.
