I am an M.S./Ph.D. student in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at UMass Amherst. I am advised by Profs. Tauhidur Rahman and Deepak Ganesan in the MOSAIC Lab. My research interests lie broadly in the areas of sensing and machine learning for cognitive wellbeing.

My work leverages wearable and ubiquitous devices to gain insights into people’s cognitive abilities (such as alertness, cognitive performance, and emotion regulation). Drawing on work in physiology and neuroscience, I use sensor data and behavioral markers to develop novel methods for non-invasive sensing of cognitive wellbeing. My past projects have examined the relationship between sleep, activity, and cognitive performance, as well as early detection of mental disorders.
