PhD Research & Startup

As part of my PhD research, I am developing Computational Healthcare a Search & Aggregation Engine.

Computational Healthcare indexes and aggregates data from millions of healthcare visits. Using novel privacy preserving aggregation strategies it simplifies data analysis & dissemination. It is developed in collaboration with Radiology and Anesthesiology departments at Weill Cornell Medical College, Cornell University.

I am a co-founder of Temporal Health. Temporal Health aims to make information derived from large healthcare databases accessible to a broad audience.

Machine Learning & Computer Vision

EraseImage.com is an online tool for segmenting images. It lets users can perform image segmentation and background removal completely in client-side JS. It is implemented using Angular, FabricJS and Superpixels.

I am interested in developing tools for mining large publicly available datasets, using cheap cloud computing resources such as AWS spot instances. Recently I have been analyzing Pinterest sitemaps for advertising and user acquisition.


I am interested in using a cheap ( Total cost < 300$ ) combination of an Android smartphone and a Sphero for monitoring and reconstruction tasks. Such devices are extremely useful for several custom tasks. E.g. Periodically taking pictures of a room for 3D reconstruction. Or programmable movable lights inside a photography studio.
