My Heart Counts is a widely distributed iOS app, developed by the Ashley lab, for cardiovascular health research and intervention. This app has produced a vast amount of lifestyle, health, and gait data, which holds great potential to inform health diagnostics and interventional tools. To this end, Daniel will work on building machine learning models to infer cardiovascular disease risk from gait accelerometry and to produce widely distributable methods for creating individualized cardiovascular risk scores, in order to advance the field of personalized medicine.
