Biography

Karthik is an MD-PhD student at the UCLA-Caltech Medical Scientist Training Program, currently pursuing his PhD at the UCLA Medical Imaging Informatics group. Prior to that, he was an undergraduate at the California Institute of Technology, from which he received a B. Sc. (hons) in Computer Science. His research focuses on the development of clinical decision support tools based on models derived from medical data, with a particular interest in applying deep learning tools to medical imaging.

Karthik is a member of several professional societies, including AMIA, IEEE, and the ACM. He is also a member of the AMA, CMA, and LACMA, and has served as a member of the board of trustees of the California Medical Association, a member of the CMA's Council on Information Technology, and as the inaugural chair of the American Medical Association Medical Student Section's Health Information Technology Task Force.
