In this new era of ‘data-medicine’, I am a physician with a passion to understand human physiology and disease with the help of data science tools. Currently, working on the ultrasonographic images taken during pregnancy to build interactive Artificial intelligence models to ensure quality of scan and reduce operator dependence as well as to predict poor pregnancy outcomes. My long-term vision is to build integrated models of health and disease using data ranging from cellular, physiological, medical records, environmental, geographical, and social networks and application of these models to help improve healthcare.
