Xiao Li
Xiao Li
Assistant Professor,
Case Western Reserve University, USA


Xiao Li is an assistant professor at Case Western Reserve University. She is highly motived to use machine learning techniques to integrate genomic, clinic and digital data to monitor changes during healthy and diseased states and improve the ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases. During her Ph.D. study, she received both computational and biological training under the supervision of Drs. Quaid Morris and Howard Lipshitz at the University of Toronto, where her research focused on the binding and function of RNA binding proteins. During the postdoctoral training, she led the wearable team in Michael Snyder lab and performed the groundwork for the proposed research by investigating the impact of wearable devices in health management. She developed change-of-heart algorithm to use wearable-measured heart rate for early warning of infectious diseases. This work has generated a lot of excitement (>88K views and reported by ~50 news organizations including WIRED, TIME, etc).
