Technician

Scribe

KELLY VISION CENTER

- Perform vision and medical workups on patients. Record HPI, medical history, and clinical observations. Perform patient testing using optometry instruments, including OCT, Visual Fields, autorefractor, tonometer, lensometer, visual acuity charts, and blood pressure cuffs. Enter testing data into patient chart with primary evaluations and indications of eye disease.

- Scribe for optometrist during eye examination. Open and close patient charts and insert medical codes for insurance.

- Perform various management duties, such as ordering and organizing contact lenses, faxing reports and referrals to local ophthalmologists, managing patient communication via office texts and voicemails, and scheduling future appointments with clear notes.

- Assist with vision therapy by leading patients through tailored exercises, recording results into charts, and updating training plans.

Summer 2021

Research Intern

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

MORGAN LAB (Lab Site)

Publication: Characterization of resting functional MRI activity alterations across epileptic foci and networks (Cerebral Cortex 2022) (link to paper)

- Investigated the role of network connectivity in a database of 250+ temporal lobe epilepsy patients and controls

- Using MATLAB and Linux, combined functional MRI data with diffusion-weighted imaging, tractography, and brain segmentation to compute the low frequency fMRI signals in white matter

- Results localize the spread of the epileptic zone, thus guiding surgical treatment

April - Oct 2021

Coursera Course Aide

MEDICAL SOFTWARE (Coursera)

- Edited lecture slides and 13 hours of lecture videos for Introduction to Medical Software, an online Coursera course taught by Yale professor, Xenophon Papademetris.

- Created and lectured a vignette on the Therac-25 incidents and the impacts on current modern medical software development. 750 students enrolled in the course within the first week of publication.

Undergraduate Student Researcher

SEAS RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP: FAN LAB (Lab Site)

- Spatially mapped scRNA-seq data, genes, and cell types over the course of embryogenesis using R

- Applied novel computational pipelines developed in the lab to study neurulation, identifying the major players in brain and spinal cord development, as well as detecting gene patterns and differentiation during this crucial period of life

Summer 2020

Undergraduate Student Researcher

SLAVOFF LAB (Lab Site)

- Evaluated non-canonical translation of small open reading frames (smORFs)

- Hypothesized methods of translation and stabilizations specific to the location of the smORF on the mRNA strand, and tested hypotheses through bioinformatic analysis, using sequence analyses, R, SnapGene software, Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV), NCBI/ENSEMBL, and other software
