Assistant Professor of Biomedical Data Science and, by courtesy, of Computer Science and of Electrical Engineering
I am an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Data Science and, by courtesy, of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. I work on making machine learning more reliable, human-compatible and statistically rigorous, and am especially interested in applications in human disease and health. I received my Ph.D from Harvard in 2014, and was at one time a member of Microsoft Research, a Gates Scholar at Cambridge and a Simons fellow at U.C. Berkeley. I joined Stanford in 2016 and am excited to also be a Chan-Zuckerberg Investigator. We are also a part of the Stanford AI Lab. My research is supported by the Sloan Fellowship, the NSF CAREER Award, and the Google and Tencent AI awards.
