Maxine Mackintosh, who joined the Shapers in 2016, is doing a PhD at UCL at the intersection of data science and dementia, where she is mining medical records for new predictors of dementia.
She's been busy this month with some kickass data science successes!
Maxine has been awarded a Winston Churchill Fellowship* (also awarded to Global Shaper Alvin Carpio some years back) to look at health/data science public-private partnerships and capacity building in the USA and East Africa. If you have any useful introductions, contact her at maxine[dot]mackintosh[at]gmail[dot]com.
She has also been accepted as a visiting PhD student at the Alan Turing Institute, the UK's national institute for data sciences. Starting in October, she will be applying novel machine learning approaches to detecting early cognitive decline.
Here's to find a cure for dementia soon!
