Pranav Rajpurkar

PhD candidate in CS

Stanford University

I am a 5th year PhD candidate in the Stanford Machine Learning Group co-advised by Andrew Ng and Percy Liang. My research interest is in building artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to tackle real world problems in medicine. My PhD work has led to the development of AI technologies for clinical medicine (CheXNe(X)t, MRNet, HeadXNet), and large datasets that have facilitated advancements of AI technologies in both medicine (MURA, CheXpert) and natural language processing systems (SQuAD). My long term mission is to build AI technologies that will be used routinely for diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of patients.
