JANANI S. IYER

I am an AI/ML Product Manager at PathAI. I lead Product Development and Translational Science for PathAI's flagship portfolio in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a metabolic liver disease with poor prognosis and no cure. I hope that our AI-powered digital pathology tools will identify effective therapies and improve outcomes for NASH patients.
Prior to joining PathAI, I completed a PhD in Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology (SHBT) at Harvard University. I designed, fabricated, and patented an endomicroscope that visualizes cells inside the cochlea— the small, snail-shaped organ that shelters the primary sensory receptors for hearing. I hope that our device will improve diagnostics for deafness, the most common sensory deficit in the world.

I am always conducting experiments, whether in research labs, or in kitchens.
I have worked as a pastry chef at restaurants and bakeries in the United States and in France, and have attended courses in French pastry technique at Le Cordon Bleu, Paris.
I custom-develop all of my recipes.
