The Hospital for Sick Children


I’m a scientist at The Hospital for Sick Children, where I run the Knowledge in Data (KinD) lab. The lab focuses on retrospective observational studies to generate new knowledge, predictive modeling using machine learning to prognosticate outcome, and curating data to support the research enterprise.
