My name is Ali A. Faruqi. I am a bioinformatician by training and have a Masters in Bioinformatics and Theoretical Systems Biology from Imperial College, London. I have worked as a researcher at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and am interested in managing the development of deep-learning based products for biomedical purposes.
I follow what I call a publish-as-you-go model. The idea is to make publicly whatever little I have done and keep on posting more results as and when they come. I think this approach is good for a number of reasons:
- Waiting time is reduced. One does not have wait really long in order to have something to share with the world.
- Feedback is quick, making the whole process of iterative research fast. Interested people can read, comment, criticize, point out mistakes and overall help in improving one’s direction of research.
- There is no fear being scooped. Whatever you are doing is out there for the world to see almost as soon as you are done.
Since I don’t work in academia anymore and my daytime job has nothing to do with scientific research for product development, I’m a pure hobbyist and machine/deep-learning enthusiast.
I don’t have any financial support for my work or a core group of people to work with. I’m reaching out to people to work and/or collaborate. If you are interested, please let me know. I’d be more than happy to talk further.
