Independent, Self-Guided Research

March 2020 - Present

I conducted independent research on the mathematical modeling of cardiac fluid dynamics and created a user-defined computerized simulation of cardiac function. Through this, I created a dynamic web application that constructs cardiovascular function graphs upon the instantiation of unique patient hemodynamic parameters. The application takes in values such as patient heart rate, systemic vascular resistance, vessel elastance, etc. and devises a simulation of a single cardiac cycle. This app has various applications in the medical field, especially in physician-patient intervention communication and in the advent of noninvasive diagnostic procedures.

Student Researcher, Texas State University

June 2019 - May 2020

By continuation of the research performed in the summer, I branched out and conducted my own independent mathematical epidemiology research on epidemic intervention. I investigated compartmental models in conjunction with contact network epidemiology to devise a novel public health intervention strategy based on the Greedy Algorithm.

Research Intern, Texas State University

July 2018 - August 2018

As a research assistant at Texas Tech University Edward E. Whitacre School of Engineering, I worked in the Cardiovascular Fluid Mechanics Laboratory to quantify the geometry and position of the leaflet free edges in order to reveal the gapping mechanism of the mitral valve, as well as develop a plug technique to prevent mitral regurgitation. The research was published in a peer-reviewed academic journal, Medicine in Novel Technology and Devices.
