Hi, I'm Vishnu.

I'm a physician & software developer passionate about innovation at the intersection of medicine and technology.

About Me

I'm a practicing, board-certified internal medicine physician and software developer experienced in creating digital health solutions leveraging machine learning, wearables & medical devices, and health data interoperability standards.

I started learning to code at a young age and have always been excited about digital health. During my medical training, I did early work developing clinical applications for conversational AI and wearables as well as extracting insights from unstructured health data using machine learning. I also co-founded a startup that developed software to help physicians prioritize clinical reports.

More recently, I've built solutions for COVID-19 that were deployed internationally and I've been leading development of CardinalKit, a framework for building digital health apps at the Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign, a role in which I'm working with several teams at Stanford to create custom apps for clinical and research use.

I've also participated in developing the first family of international mobile health data standards for the IEEE and mentoring engineering students at The George Washington University on applying machine learning to assist in early disease detection.
