2016-Present

I am an undergraduate researcher at Synlab conducting research involving integrative computational biology as well as Human-Computer interaction. My journey began back in a software course where I was introduced to the lab by my professor at the time, and who is now my mentor, Roozbeh. This is where I truly understood the importance of research within Digital Media and the impact it has on the lives of various people within this world of evolving technology. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering at Ryerson University. The knowledge I've gained in courses such as Computational Biology and Software Programming have allowed me to work on computational biology projects including Tangible mtDNA. Some of the areas within the field that have intrigued me include; Machine Learning, Bioinstrumentation, and Signal Analysis. These have further developed into interests within research that I look forward to working on. As a hobbyist, I enjoy web development, tinkering with microcontrollers, and watching various documentaries. I'm also an occasional competitive gamer, so if you have a game you think you can beat me at, I'd love to play a match or two!
