I am a medical student with a strong interest in computer science, statistics, and applied mathematics. Rather than applying these quantitative tools to basic research problems, I am excited about their potential to help us better understand how care is delivered in hospitals and clinics, how patients relate to their diseases and the healthcare system, and how medical professionals do their jobs. I maintain a particular interest in organizing and mining the massive amounts of data produced every day at all levels of the healthcare system with an eye towards patient safety and quality improvement.

As third year continues, I am excited to begin thinking about what I will eventually try to match in. While it is still early, I find myself particularly interested in emergency medicine.
