I earned my PhD in Bioengineering from Stanford University. Recently, Dr. Russ Altman, my old professor, mentor, and friend asked me to be on his radio show about how people are using big data and data science in various industries. The taping was in front of a live studio audience, that included many old classmates, my PhD advisor, my thesis committee members, and current Grand Rounds colleagues. I was definitely nervous to talk about my work in front of so many people who I admire, have learned from, and have helped shape my career. And yet, I was so excited to be able to share how I am using what I learned from my academic career, and merging it with insights and abilities gathered since, to help make a difference in patient experience and outcomes. I also got to share the stage with a fellow Stanford Bioengineering alumni Grace Tang, who works on “bad actor” detection at LinkedIn. She works in a completely different field than health care, and yet we were able to find many similarities in our work.
