Computer Science; 2026

Hi everyone! I'm Veda Kam, a sophomore majoring in CS. I'm originally from the Bay Area, California, and my research interests encompass the intersection of healthcare and technology. Specifically, I'm pursuing research on algorithms for biomedical image analysis, disease diagnosis, as well as precision medicine digital tools. On campus, I'm involved in Cornell DEBUT, the Biomedical Engineering Project Team, SPICMACAY, the South Asian classical music group, and LCL, the entrepreneurship accelerator.

Biological Sciences: 2025

Research Description: Currently, I’m involved in the Cheong Lab, studying ART (Assisted Reproductive Technologies) alongside my independent research project on improving embryo cryo tolerance via exosome supplementation. This research would continue the lab’s current efforts to understand how select chemicals can improve embryonic cryo tolerance and advance our interests in cryopreservation as well.


Outside of research, I enjoy trying new coffee drinks and playing tennis with friends!
