What drew you to CPERL? How does CPERL align with your professional vision?   

I am working towards my master’s degree in management information systems at UIC, and am therefore interested in harnessing technological and innovative tools to accelerate healthcare, which aligns well with CPERL’s scope of work. I will leverage my statistical and machine learning background that has helped me to analyze masses of data to improve patient care and engagement between client and providers.

What do you work on in CPERL?

I would be working with the product development team where I would be optimizing an electronic health intervention for testing before it is used in pediatric rehabilitation.

What are your favorite ways to occupy yourself, and what does it mean for you to participate in these activities?

I love to walk around the city, exploring new places and restaurants with my friends. Exploring new places gives me an opportunity to interact with different people around me and understand different cultures.
