I'm Andrew Beers. As of fall 2019, I am a PhD student in the University of Washington's Human-Centered Design and Engineering program (HCDE). I research mis/disinformation and polarization on social media.
Until the summer of 2019, I worked at the Quantitative Translational Imaging Lab
at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging. My work at the QTIM focused on machine learning as applied to medical imaging scans, as well as software development for the imaging program 3D Slicer
and the Python package DeepNeuro
. Before that, I was an undergraduate at Brown University in the Environmental Studies department researching historical records of climate change in the North Atlantic ocean. In between, I have worked for non-profit organizations in research and fundraising capacities.
