Puneet Batra, Ph.D.
Puneet Batra is a machine learning scientist, software engineer, and physicist at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. He co-leads a collaboration between the Broad’s Data Sciences Platform and Cardiovascular Disease Initiative, known as Machine Learning for Cardiovascular Disease (ML4CVD), to catalyze the use of machine learning across cardiovascular disease to discover new biological insights and impact real-world clinical care.
Before joining the Broad, Batra worked in the software industry building machine learning platforms: in location data analysis, as cofounder of LevelTrigger; in health care, as chief data scientist at Kyruus; and in scalable data analysis, as lead analytic scientist at Aster Data (Acq by Teradata). Before becoming an entrepreneur, Batra built fundamental models of particle physics, developing theories for Fermilab’s Tevatron and CERN’s Large Hadron Collider as a research scientist at Columbia University.
Puneet completed his B.A. in physics at Harvard University and has a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Stanford University
