Data Science Fellow
Haas School of Business

I am currently a PhD student at the Haas School of Business, having previously completed my MD-MPH. I focus on the intersection of healthcare and management, driven by a deep interest in understanding the embedded meanings in medical literature. I am also interested in physician-scientists' narratives of clinical artificial intelligence. Additionally, I study the impact of management practices on physicians. My work is guided by my background in healthcare and a commitment to improving organizational practices within the field.
