Cyril Zakka


Dr Cyril Zakka completed his medical training at the American University of Beirut Medical Center, where he founded and served as the Director of the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine program. As a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, his work has focused on building multimodal large language models (MLLM) for clinical medicine, and foundation models for surgery and cardiac imaging.

Shreya Mishra


Shreya is the co-lead for BrainXAI ReSearch and a postdoc research scholar at the Cleveland Clinic after completing Ph.D. at the Centre for Computational Biology, IIIT Delhi, India in the area of Data mining and algorithm development in genomics. Her research is focused on developing algorithms for Big Data Mining with Graph Analytics for Genomics data including various omics datasets. She is keen to develop time and space-efficient algorithms to reduce the computational complexity of omics data.

Raghav Awasthi


Raghav is the co-lead for BrainXAI ReSearch and a postdoc scholar at Case Western Research University,USA. He completed his Ph.D. from IIIT-D working on AI in Healthcare. Prior to joining this institute, he completed Masters in Mathematics from IIT Kanpur where he was the rank opener for the batch.He also outperformed in CSIR-JRF which approved his funding for Ph.D. His Ph.D. thesis is currently focused on Causal Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning in Healthcare. His focus is to build data-driven decision support that is explainable and effectively deployable.He is highly motivated to explore the applications of Mathematics in Healthcare.
