John Maidens 

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Ryerson University and a member of Ryerson's Data Science Lab. I also serve as Chief Data Scientist at Eko Devices, where I build AI to automatically assess heart health.

I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from UC Berkeley in 2017, advised by Murat Arcak. I am broadly interested in control, optimization, signal processing, statistics and machine learning. My research focuses on developing scalable algorithms for the optimal design of experiments and for safety verification in dynamical systems. I apply these algorithms to solve problems in medical imaging, automated anesthesia, and cardiology.
