Research Interests 

I am deeply intrigued by the confluence of healthcare and artificial intelligence. As part of the Hawaii Digital Health Lab, my research is under the supervision of Peter Washington and focuses on leveraging advanced computational models to address challenges in healthcare. I am also interested in building large AI models for different downstream tasks like recognition, detection, and generative AI.
