I believe health care is a fundamental human right and that no one life is more valuable than another. This foundational belief of mine was my motivation for founding the non-profit organization GLITR (Giving Life In The Rural), at the age of 17. I am constantly working on ways to strengthen the intersection between technology and medicine. During my undergraduate career, I developed a computer program, KiDi SMS (Kids with Diabetes Self-Management System) which uses gamification to incentivize self-management of blood glucose among children with type 1 diabetes. As a graduate student in the Masters in Engineering & Product Design program, I am currently working on WADE (Walking Analyzing Device) as the first empirical method for the early detection of Autism.
