Biography
Jonathan Carlson leads a team of engineers and AI researchers at Microsoft Healthcare. The team focuses on modeling and mapping T-cells to their cognate antigens, with the aim of developing diagnostics and therapeutics based on measured and inferred immune repertoire specificity. As a researcher at Microsoft, he has published broadly in the areas of virology and immunology, largely through the lens of modeling within-host virus evolution. He is the recipient of the 2017 Bonnie Mathieson Young Investigator Award for outstanding research in HIV vaccines, and the 2009 University of Washington and US Council of Graduate Schools (finalist) Distinguished Dissertation Awards. Dr. Carlson received his A.B. in Biology and Computer Science from Dartmouth College in 2003, and his Ph.D. in computer science and engineering from the University of Washington in 2009.


 Session Abstract – PMWC Silicon Valley
