My research is focused on discrete optimization methods for analyzing images, with an emphasis on medical applications. I hold a joint position in computer science and in radiology, and most of my work involves both departments. I am currently doing my reseach at Cornell's NYC campus.
I enjoy teaching introductory undergraduate courses, especially involving functional programming or algorithms.
