Annie Qurat Ul Ain
I was born and raised in Lahore, Pakistan where I completed my bachelor’s in Computer Science. Following the need to delve deeper into machine learning, I completed my masters in Data Science from the University of Chicago as a Fulbright scholar in 2020. After graduation, I moved to Dubai where I worked as a Machine Learning Engineer for a retail company. The pandemic (and the general state of the World) made me re-align my interests to be at the intersection of healthcare and AI. Motivated by the need for a rigorous research experience and to more firmly orient myself towards biomedical AI, I joined the CDT program. My favourite part about the programme is that it will help me combine the breadth of a healthcare and ethics curriculum with the depth of a strong Machine Learning core!
Outside of academia, I am an avid reader and like exploring the crests and troughs of our planet through hiking and scuba diving!
