Dr. Philppakis studied mathematics at Yale University, and later earned an Master’s in Mathematics from Cambridge University as an Ehrman Scholar. He then received his PhD in biophysics and an MD from Harvard Medical School. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in 2011 and a Cardiology Fellowship in 2015. Currently, he is a cardiologist at BWH where he cares for patients with rare genetic disorders. Dr. Philippakis is also the Chief Data Officer at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and a Venture Partner at Google Ventures.

Dr. Philippakis has a long-standing interest in developing computational methods to analyze large collections of biological data to make predictions or discover new biology. He studied computational methods for understanding transcriptional regulation during his PhD and also contributed key methods for quality score recalibration and variant calling that are now instantiated in the Genome Analysis Toolkit. He now leads the Data Sciences Platform at the Broad Institute and focuses on creating scalable computational platforms for aggregating, analyzing and sharing genomic and clinical data.
