Saurabh leads the AI research team at Babylon. He has been with Babylon since 2016. In this time he has guided the team to develop Babylon’s AI for the development of the triage, diagnostic and predictive models for healthcare, and applied the team’s research in Bayesian Machine Learning and Causal inference. Prior to Babylon, Saurabh spent time as a post-doctoral researcher at the MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis & Modelling at Imperial College London. This work was funded by the Gates Foundation in collaboration with the CDC, and focused on the development of novel statistical machine learning methods to estimate poliovirus transmission from genetic sequence data. Before his post-doctoral work, Saurabh completed his PhD in population genetics from Imperial College London, investigating the population genetics of Tuberculosis and predicting new drug targets from whole genome sequence data.
