Daniel Freedman is Research Czar at Verily (= Google Life Sciences), where he leads the Verily Research organization. Daniel had previously served as Research Scientist at Google Research. At both Verily and Google, Daniel has led a group of scientists whose focus is the automation of medicine through intelligent imaging. In addition to automated medicine, Daniel's current research interests include advanced imaging modalities - both nanoscale imaging using optical microscopy as well as full sound-speed inversion ultrasound; the application of deep learning to the solution of problems in physics; and fundamental techniques in computer vision and artificial intelligence.
Daniel received his AB in Physics from Princeton University (Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi) in 1993, and his PhD in Engineering Sciences from Harvard University in 2000.
From 2000-9, he was Assistant Professor, and then Associate Professor (with tenure), in the Computer Science Department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). In 2007, Daniel came to Israel as a Fulbright Fellow and Visiting Professor of Applied Mathematics at the Weizmann Institute of Science. He then permanently relocated to Israel taking up a series of positions in industrial research labs and academia, including HP Labs, IBM Research, and Microsoft Research, before moving to Google Research. After a little less than 5 years at Google Research, Daniel moved to head up Verily Research.
In addition to the Fulbright Fellowship, Daniel has received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award. He has been an investigator on several grants from NSF, NIH, and the US Army.
