I have over 15 years of experience in leading various applied AI projects in collaboration with public and private health sectors. I have well-established experiences in developing and teaching health AI training programs and graduate-level courses on ML and knowledge representation in the health domain.
Prior to joining Vector Institute, I was a postdoctoral researcher at KITE research institute - University Health Network where my research focused on applying ML techniques in the development and evaluation of intelligent health monitoring technologies. I finished my PhD in 2015, at the University of Toronto and was a member of the intelligent assistive technology and systems lab under the supervision of Dr. Alex Mihailidis.
