Department of Biomedical Engineering
Farzana Z Ali is a third-year PhD candidate in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Her dissertation is focused on the application of machine learning techniques for the prediction of antidepressant treatment response. She specializes in designing predictive algorithms utilizing data from multimodal neuroimaging and wearable sensors. Farzana has recently completed her MD degree at the University at Buffalo, and continues to work on research and development of wellness programs to combat physician burnout. She is a fellow at the Scholars in BioMedical Sciences (SBMS) Program that provides training in translational medicine, and the Lumen Circles program sponsored by the SUNY Center for Professional Development that has strengthened her expertise as a student-focused programming instructor. She aims to apply her leadership skills as a female leader in academic radiology and an entrepreneur in healthcare technology. Farzana found the PhD Career Ladder Program (PCLP) useful for honing her professional skills as a future physician leader, and is highly enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge and experience as a PCLP leader.
