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, distributed computing, and bioinformatics. My current research focuses on developing: (a) blockchain-based frameworks for managing and sharing sensitive data in healthcare and biomedical applications, particularly in multi-site clinical trials and IoT, (b) privacy-preserving federated learning models to analyze distributed electronic health data.
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. Prior to joining IBM Research, I worked at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard on comparative genomics to control Zika outbreak.
