Douglas Kirkpatrick
Staff Software Engineer

Douglas has always been interested in math, science, and technology, which lead him to pursue a career in Computer Science and AI, often with a biological or medical association. He received his BS and MS from Vanderbilt University, where his Master’s Thesis focused on analyzing and modelling swarm intelligence. Douglas then completed his PhD at Michigan State University, researching mental models in evolved artificial neural networks. He took a postdoc at the UMass Chan Medical School studying decision making in Parkinson’s patients. More recently, Douglas has worked on a ML-driven diagnostic app for Myotonic Dystrophy, device manufacturing, and an AI-powered stethoscope.

When not working, he enjoys playing hockey, running, and spending time outdoors with his wife, daughter, and their dog, Badger.
