Suchi Saria named a 2018 Sloan Research Fellow

Suchi Saria, assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and a member of the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare, has been named a 2018 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in Computer Science.

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation awards 126 two-year fellowships each year to young researchers based on their potential to make substantial contributions to their fields and distinguished performance.

Saria has a vision for health care that is able to save lives through complex computer science. She has created computer algorithms that hospitals can use to recognize sepsis, a life-threatening condition that claims the lives of more hospital patients every year than breast and prostate cancer combined. Last year, she was named to MIT’s “35 Innovators Under 35” for her work building next generation diagnostic and treatment-planning tools for health care.

Suchi Saria is one of four Johns Hopkins scientists named Sloan Research Fellows in 2018. View the full list on The Hub.
