I’m a Visiting Researcher with Google's Verily and a post-doc with Dr. Peter Szolovits in MEDG (CV); in Fall 2018 I will be joining the University of Toronto as an Assistant Professor in Computer Science and Medicine, affiliated with the Vector Institute. I have worked with Dr. John Guttag at CSAIL, and have clinical collaborations at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital. I've organized the NIPS 2014 Women in Machine Learning Workshop, the NIPS 2016 Workshop on Machine Learning for Health, and MIT's first Hacking Discrimination event.

I’m interested in creating and applying machine learning algorithms towards improved prediction and stratification of relevant human risks. My PhD work has focused on:
