I am a data scientist in the Big Data and Helminth Epidemiology Research Group (Chami Group) which studies schistosomiasis epidemiology in Uganda. My role involves managing multi-dimensional data collected from the Ugandan SchistoTrack Cohort that includes survey data, images, spatio-temporal data etc. I am involved in assisting with data management, developing scripts for various tasks and performing data wrangling.
I completed an MRes degree in Data Science and Analytics for Health from the University of Leeds. For my masters project I worked on process mining techniques to study impact of COVID-19 on hospital care pathways. Previously, I worked for a year at OIST, Japan, as a graduate student on three short rotation projects involving statistical analyses of trajectory data and the application of deep learning methods for image processing. I also hold a BS-MS degree in Physics from IISER Bhopal, India.
In my free time I enjoy travelling and trying out new cuisines.
