I'm Dan, a PhD Student at Cornell University, based at Cornell Tech in NYC. I work with Dr. Tanzeem Choudhury, and am a member of the People-Aware Computing Lab. My research focuses on developing and implementing novel algorithms, often within the field of machine learning, for healthcare. I specifically focus on creating these algorithms to solve problems in mental and behavioral health, and try to dissect how we can interpret these algorithms for clinical use.
Prior to Cornell, I worked at the intersection of data science and healthcare developing techniques to model the cost of chronic conditions for healthcare payers and providers within the U.S. I've also spent time in Australia creating educational programs to upskill adults for technology roles. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University. I also enjoy playing music and going (or watching online during the times of COVID-19) to live shows. You can catch me hiking on weekends, or debating NYC's best pizza slice and ice cream shops. I occasionally blog.
