Anna is a Senior Scientist in the Genetics and Genome Biology Program at SickKids Research Institute and Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto (Computational Biology Group) with a cross appointment in the department of Statistics. Her main research focus is to develop machine learning methods that can help decipher human disease heterogeneity, which involves combining data from multiple sources. Examples of her recent research include predicting necessity of thyroid biopsy and resection and age of cancer onset in children with cancer predisposition syndrome. Anna trained in machine learning at Carnegie Mellon University, with a postdoctoral focus in computational biology. The Goldenberg Lab collaborates with clinicians to ensure that work is relevant in the clinic. Anna is also a Member of the CIFAR Child and Brain Development group and a Member of the Scientific Management Committee of the Centre for Computational Medicine at SickKids.
