Director at Brown University
Sam is studying neuroscience at Brown University, and he is from Providence, Rhode Island. He first discovered data science in his high school AP statistics course, where he collected and analyzed data from the student population. Sam was fascinated by how easily he could sum up his data with graphs. Sam has always aspired to be a physician and, in college, he started taking neuroscience courses, where he soon understood the importance of statistics in life science: nearly every discovery is presented as a statistical figure. After that realization, Sam took a course in R, where he rediscovered his passion for data science. This chain of events has led him to Biokind and the intersection of healthcare and data science. Through his involvement with Biokind, he hopes to bridge the gap between healthcare nonprofits’ actions and data using our statistical knowledge.
