Christina X Ji


I am a 2nd year PhD student in computer science at MIT in the clinical machine learning group advised by David Sontag. I am interested in characterizing variation in how patients are treated, evaluating the effect of treatment policies, and modeling the progression of chronic diseases.

I completed my MEng and BS in computer science at MIT in 2019. I interned at Philips research in summer 2018 and IBM research in January 2018. I am grateful to have received the Abdul Latif Jameel fellowship for machine learning and health solutions for my first year of PhD. [CV]

I am passionate about welcoming new students to MIT. I currently serve as a co-vice president of visit days and orientation in the EECS graduate student association. For many years, I advised first-year undergraduates and served as an undergraduate orientation leader.

I would be happy to hear from people at cji at mit dot edu or at my Twitter or LinkedIn!
