Ava Kouhana

Research Assistant




Ava Kouhana is a French master’s student in Artificial intelligence and Statistics. She joined for 6 months Harvard Ophthalmology and AI lab as a short-term visiting scholar. Beforehand, she has worked on several projects in parallel with her studies both in AI and Statistics 

For eight months, Ava Kouhana worked on a research project under the supervision of Professor A. Tsybakov on statistical methods for fast image recovery under noisy compressed sensing. Doing so, she developed skills in theoretical statistics using wavelet decomposition and algorithms used in solving linear inverse problems. She also worked on an NLP project whose aim was to build a deep learning model to model the consequences of Twitter publications on the prices of cryptocurrencies. 

In the lab, Ava is mainly interested in developing statistical and machine-learning methods for research projects in ophthalmology. Ava will pursue her studies from September with either a PhD or the last year of her master’s degree.
