Physician/Scientist & Assistant Professor in Medicine (Cardiology), UCSF
I’m a practicing cardiologist specializing in imaging and an MIT alumna. I run a research lab focused on using machine learning to improve biomedical imaging. Images are key to diagnosis and management across healthcare, but it’s really hard to acquire and interpret them. We want to cut down on diagnostic error, and discover new information hidden in clinical imaging.
To decrease error in medicine.
If there’s nothing wrong with me, then there must be something wrong with the universe.
