I study questions in medicine and health policy using econometric methods and machine learning tools.

I am an Associate Professor and the Blue Cross of California Distinguished Professor of Health Policy and Management at the Berkeley School of Public Health. I teach classes on machine learning and health.

Before Berkeley, I was an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School. I trained in emergency medicine, and continue to practice (here).


I run a lab with Sendhil Mullainathan, joint between Berkeley and the University of Chicago. We hire 1-2 pre-doctoral fellows every year. Previous fellows have gone on to PhD programs (e.g., MIT computer science; Harvard, MIT, Stanford economics) and MD or MD/PhD programs (e.g., Harvard, Stanford). Please check the lab page for application details. We also work with a number of PhD students at Berkeley, Chicago, Stanford, and Harvard.

I co-founded Nightingale Open Science, a non-profit that makes massive new medical imaging datasets available for research [FT article], and Dandelion, a company that creates a platform for AI innovation in health.


A short CV is here. Bios of various lengths, talk abstracts, and high resolution picture are here.
