Brian is a third-year computer science student at Carleton taking a minor in statistics and a minor in psychology. He has always been fascinated by robots and their inner workings, especially the AI design portion of it. You’ll probably most likely hear Brian talk about his latest netflix show obsession at some point (he’s a pro binge-watcher).
Victoria has just begun her MASc in Electrical and Computer Engineering this past summer. Her research focuses on applying machine learning and data science techniques to solve problems in biomedical informatics. She is currently working on microRNA discovery and target prediction.
Fun fact: Victoria loves to bake: cookies, cinnamon rolls, pies and cakes. Anything at all!
Khoa is entering his MASc studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a Vector Scholarship in Artificial Intelligence this Fall. He is currently researching Few-Shot Learning, Semantic Segmentation and DSP algorithms for his work in artery wall motion tracking using ultrasound. Fun fact: Khoa works as a mobile app developer for a business venture with Stanford Hospital in Silicon Valley with fellow Workshop Lead Arushan.
Arushan is a recent graduate from Biomedical and Electrical Engineering from Carleton University. He is passionate about the transformation of the healthcare industry through advances in data science and machine learning.
Fun fact: Arushan is currently involved in a business venture with Stanford Hospital in the Silicon Valley along with fellow Workshop Lead Khoa
