Global Challenge: Health Informatics

I’m interested in health informatics because it is not a purely engineering issue. There are social challenges as well as technical ones, which is why the TGL program is perfectly suited to teach me how to address this challenge.”


I have lived in Beijing, Taipei, California, and now Brooklyn. I am currently a member of CN3, a research lab at NYU Medical School, and a TA for EG 1003. I am also an avid competitive swimmer, competing for the NYU varsity swim team. Roll Violets!!!

In my free time, I like to watch anything on YouTube and also think about how I can get myself on Conon O’Brien’s talk show. As you probably already know, I am still working on the latter.

I am interested in the intersection of machine learning and biology, with a particular focus on neuroscience. Machine learning is a powerful tool for modeling and ultimately understanding how the brain works. The TGL program offers an abundance of resources for me to pursue this passion, and I cannot wait to get involved for the rest of my college career and beyond.
