Joshua was born and raised in South Florida before venturing north to Brown University to pursue a computer science (CS) concentration. Conducting genomics research in his freshman year showed him the potential for CS to impact non-technical sectors, so he switched to computational biology. In his senior year, he became a teaching assistant for an introductory CS course, where he discovered his passion for working with students one-on-one. Excited by the prospect of CS transforming clinical medicine, Joshua has become passionate about helping other students integrate interdisciplinary interests into their medical training.
Currently a GS1 in the MD/PhD program at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, Joshua’s research investigates the applications of machine learning to support clinical decision-making and biomedical research initiatives. Outside of academics, he volunteers as a student interviewer for both the MD and MSTP committees. In his spare time, Joshua enjoys reading personal finance websites. In medical school, he was co-president of the Business and Economics in Medicine Club and coordinated its events, including a career panel that explored alternative paths in medicine (medical journalism, consulting, devices, etc).
Joshua is excited to be a part of the Passport Admissions advising team and work with the next generation of physicians!
