Machine Learning Intern

Algorithm development for arrhythmia detection in a wearable single-lead ECG monitoring solution

  • Developed algorithms for supervised beat classification and unsupervised anomaly detection based on public and private datasets
  • Integrated and curated heterogeneous sources of public and private cardiac electrophysiology datasets
  • Modernized data storage by improving storage, archival and performance efficiencies by migrating to HDF5 from plaintext format, while also mitigating problems with larger than memory datasets and enabling efficient metadata access and query
