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.”


Hi! My name is Aaron, and I’m a CS student at Tandon. Before coming to New York, I have also lived in the Bay Area, Taipei, and Beijing.

I’m an undergraduate researcher at Professor Zhe Sage Chen’s lab, CN3. My research focus is computational neuroscience and machine learning. It’s an exciting interdisciplinary field to be involved in. In the past, I’ve investigated Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy using machine learning models and electroencephalography (EEG) data for classification. Currently, I am trying to see if we can use machine learning models to classify whether someone has chronic back pain based on their EEG data for my capstone project. Besides research, I’ve also interned at Facebook (Instagram) and Snap as a software engineer intern.

Outside of all the academic stuff, I used to be a competitive swimmer at NYU and like to play piano, game, and watch TV/anime in my free time.
