Software Developer | Author  
Medical Doctor PhD

As a dedicated MD and PhD with a passion for healthcare, I have spent the past several years pursuing research projects and publishing papers to advance the field. In addition to my medical background, I recently ventured into the healthtech industry in 2020 as a Python programming enthusiast while still working part-time in medicine. With my new skills, I secured a position as a medical knowledge translator at Ada Health in July 2021, and have since transitioned to working as an MD and software developer at Gericall. In my current role, I collaborate with our IT team to implement innovative IT solutions using React and C# to enhance the quality and efficiency of elderly care. As a healthcare provider, I understand the importance of technology in improving healthcare outcomes and delivery but recognize that it should never replace the human connection. My ultimate goal is to leverage technology to enhance healthcare, prioritizing the needs and well-being of those affected by disease above all else.


01 Software development

MY latest work. SEE the full list >


User-friendly web app to calculate 24-hour basal insulin recommendations with the OpenAPS (Open Artificial Pancreas System) oref0 algorithm. It uses the Savitzky–Golay filter to smooth curves and can upload the recommendations directly to an insulin pump. The repo can be found over here.

Diabetes question-answer system

Together with colleagues at Ada Health, I worked on a question-answer system for diabetics and those interested in learning more about diabetes. It was based on the FAISS algorithm and coded in Python in the front-end and back-end. The front-end was built with Streamlit. 

Nightscout extension

Extension app to NightScout and AAPS (Android Artificial Pancreas System) with the option for a) activity tracker feedback b) refresh infusion set reminders. You can find the repo over here.

After the achievement of proficiency criteria in laparoscopic skills training outside the OR, trainees commence their learning experience in the OR supervised by a consultant surgeon who guides them through the procedure. My thesis focused on the enhancement of these educational efforts by improving: 1) assessment of candidates for medical specialities that require laparoscopic surgery, 2) procedural laparoscopy training in the OR and 3) post-operative procedure-specific performance feedback and assessment.
