I am an Assistant Professor in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at UMass Amherst, leading the Information Fusion Lab. Previously, I was a postdoc at Stanford University, having completed a PhD in Machine Learning from Carnegie Mellon University.
My current research is on hybrid models and on the development of new deep learning methodology to obtain salient representations from multimodal biomedical data, including time series, text and images. I was awarded the Marr Prize for Best Paper at ICCV 2015, the Star Research Award at the Annual Congress of the Society of Critical Care Medicine 2016 and the Manning IALS Research Award in 2019.
I am keenly interested in applying my ML research towards the advancement of healthcare. I previously co-organized several editions of the NeurIPS workshop on Machine Learning in Healthcare and more recently served as area chair for the Machine Learning in Healthcare Conference. I am also the admin of the ml4health Google group.
