Margaret (Meg) Good, Ph.D., specializes in health economics, health policy, and survey research methods. She has been with Optum since 2005. In her current role as Vice President of Data Analytics, Dr. Good advises Optum businesses on how to use analytics to achieve strategic objectives for their products and services. She supports the advancement and use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, advanced analytics, and emerging technologies at Optum. Before joining the OEA team, Dr. Good served as the Vice President of Health Economics & Outcomes Research in Optum Life Sciences. This team conducts observational research studies using administrative claims data, patient and provider surveys, EHR/medical chart data, and other secondary data sources. Prior to joining Optum, she was a faculty member in the Department of Public Policy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County where she taught courses in health policy and research methods. She also worked at the University of Minnesota where she worked in a research collaborative funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to help states expand access to health insurance and health coverage among disadvantaged populations. Dr. Good earned her PhD and MS in health services research and policy at the University of Minnesota and her undergraduate degree at Williams College. She has presented her research at national conferences and has authored or co-authored publications that include articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Inquiry, Medical Care Research & Review, and the Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law.
Tamara Broderick is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. She is a member of the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), the MIT Statistics and Data Science Center, and the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS). She completed her Ph.D. in Statistics at the University of California, Berkeley in 2014. Previously, she received an AB in Mathematics from Princeton University (2007), a Master of Advanced Study for completion of Part III of the Mathematical Tripos from the University of Cambridge (2008), an MPhil by research in Physics from the University of Cambridge (2009), and an MS in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley (2013). Her recent research has focused on developing and analyzing models for scalable Bayesian machine learning. She has been awarded an Early Career Grant (ECG) from the Office of Naval Research (2020), an AISTATS Notable Paper Award (2019), an NSF CAREER Award (2018), a Sloan Research Fellowship (2018), an Army Research Office Young Investigator Program (YIP) award (2017), Google Faculty Research Awards, an Amazon Research Award, the ISBA Lifetime Members Junior Researcher Award, the Savage Award (for an outstanding doctoral dissertation in Bayesian theory and methods), the Evelyn Fix Memorial Medal and Citation (for the Ph.D. student on the Berkeley campus showing the greatest promise in statistical research), the Berkeley Fellowship, an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, a Marshall Scholarship, and the Phi Beta Kappa Prize (for the graduating Princeton senior with the highest academic average).
Dr. Boardman has over a decade of experience as a scientist, professor, and consultant in various sectors and disciplines, including digital marketing, health tech, intelligence, entrepreneurship, economic development, and health/medical policy. Her knowledge and experience includes A/B testing, machine learning, agent-based modeling, statistics, and intelligence analysis. In her work, she places heavy emphasis on clearly and empathetically communicating insights derived from small, qualitative data up to the big data she currently works with in digital marketing. Invigorated by messy, unconventional data and problems, she has also designed and modified several techniques and approaches to work with this. She believes that science is an ongoing process and we should adapt our approach to the problems and data, not find problems and data that work well with what we know. Currently, Dr. Boardman is a Senior Data Scientist at TI Health and holds a B.B.A. in International Business from the University of Oklahoma, an M.P.P. in Public Policy from Pepperdine University, a PhD in Public Policy from George Mason University, and a Masters of Information and Data Science from Berkeley.
Joy Payton is a cloud engineer, data scientist, and adjunct professor who specializes in helping biomedical professionals conduct reproducible computational research. In addition to moving medicine forward through principles of open science and reproducibility, Joy also enjoys teaching citizen scientists how to use public data repositories to understand their own communities better and advocate for change from a data-centric perspective. Her various roles allow Joy to lead efforts to teach people how to write their first line of code and help anyone who’s interested climb the data science learning curve. Currently employed by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Yeshiva University, Joy is always open to hearing about open-source, data-centric volunteer opportunities for herself and her students.
Dr. Clair Sullivan is currently a graph data science advocate at Neo4j, working to expand the community of data scientists and machine learning engineers using graphs to solve challenging problems. She received her doctorate degree in nuclear engineering from the University of Michigan in 2002. After that, she began her career in nuclear emergency response at Los Alamos National Laboratory where her research involved signal processing of spectroscopic data. She spent 4 years working in the federal government on related subjects and returned to academic research in 2012 as an assistant professor in the Department of Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While there, her research focused on using machine learning to analyze the data from large sensor networks. Deciding to focus more on machine learning, she accepted a job at GitHub as a machine learning engineer while maintaining adjunct assistant professor status at the University of Illinois. Additionally, she founded a company, La Neige Analytics, whose purpose is to provide data science expertise to the ski industry. She has authored 4 book chapters, over 20 peer-reviewed papers, and more than 30 conference papers. Dr. Sullivan was the recipient of the DARPA Young Faculty Award in 2014 and the American Nuclear Society’s Mary J. Oestmann Professional Women’s Achievement Award in 2015.
