Dan is the Director of Machine Learning at Arterys, a startup focused on streamlining the practice of medical image interpretation and post-processing. After receiving a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford, he stayed for a postdoc, focusing on using machine learning to predict outcomes and disease characteristics in cancer patients. From there, he joined CellScope, where he founded a machine learning team that used the then-nascent field of Deep Learning to diagnose ear disease and streamline the process of recording ear exams at home. He moved to Arterys to found their machine learning team in 2015.
