I am a physician entrepreneur and have started companies in genetics (Color Genomics) and women's health (The Cusp) for personalized care, disease prevention, and infectious disease diagnosis. I am also interested in the use of machine learning in medicine and have worked with Geoff Tison, MD, on applications in cardiology. I am broadly interested in the use of technology and machine learning to transform medical practice.
Prior to Color, I was a resident in clinical pathology at UCSF, where I worked on three research projects in breast cancer, leukemia, and pathogen detection. I also started a computational genetics group (with David Patterson) at the UC Berkeley RISE Lab.
I attended UMass Medical School and worked at MIT and then UCSD under a Howard Hughes Medical Training Fellowship. Prior to that, I completed a biochemistry BSc at McGill University (Montreal).
Board certified pathologist (American Board of Pathology).
