    Collapse Overview
    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).

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
