I'm Jarett Dewbury, a third-year undergraduate studying Biomedical Engineering at the University of Waterloo.
I'm interested in the intersection of medicine and machine learning, particularly in enhancing diagnostic capabilities and decision-making. My current research focuses on developing transformative AI-enabled tools tailored for use in low-resource settings. This involves creating robust multimodal models that can operate efficiently with minimal data and computational resources. By leveraging these advanced techniques, I aim to contribute to the development of accessible and accurate diagnostic solutions that can have a significant impact on global healthcare.
Currently, I'm a visiting researcher at Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Loza Tadesse working on machine learning for low-resource diagnostics. I'm also the co-founder of WAT.ai, the University of Waterloo's artificial intelligence student design team. Previously, I was a machine learning researcher at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital working with OCT images for on-device segmentation applications.
I'm grateful to be supported by the Emergent Ventures Fellowship.
I enjoy staying active in the gym and engaging in a variety of sports and outdoor activities. Before attending university, I spent a large amount of my early life playing junior hockey and pursuing my athletic goals.
