BIO:  Andrew Beam, PhD is an instructor within the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School. His research develops and applies machine-learning methods to extract meaningful insights from massive clinical datasets. He earned his PhD in bioinformatics for work on neural network models of genome-wide association studies. His current work has special focus on machine learning for neonatal/perinatal medicine, but the unifying theme of all of his research is the use of data-driven models to improve decision-making in healthcare.
