Hello, I'm Jai Prakash Veerla

I'm a CS PhD candidate studying AI + HCI + Bioinformatics at UTA

I work with Dr. Jacob Luber in the MICHI - Health Data Science Lab at UTA.

My research focuses on improving diagnostic decisions of pathologists by building interactive mixed reality experiences assisted by AI utlizing the principles of HCI to visualize Cancer Tumor Microenvironments using digital pathology imaging and Multi-omics data.

Additionally, I also work on explainability, interpretability and trustworthiness of Foundational Models in Healthcare.

I am mentored by Dr. Jacob Luber, Dr. Cesar Torres, Dr. VP Nguyen, and Dr. Jiayi Meng, who are members of my PhD Committee.
