Research Fellow: 2016 - 2019

Mayo Clinic, Phoenix, AZ

Precision Neurotherapeutics Lab

  • Analyzed 4 patient cohorts with varied drug treatment regimens using a novel clinical response metric, Days Gained.
  • Generated 3D models of brain MRI and simulated tumor models for videos and 3D prints used to educate patients about their disease.
  • Enhanced image registration tools in Django and Python framework resulting in 2500 newly applied registrations.
  • Supported multiple research projects through SQL querying and ETL data wrangling techniques.
