Adil joined DGNN to learn how his future career in neurosurgery can have an impact at the global scale. Inspired by his travels and strong familial ties abroad, he hopes to use his future skills to serve those most in need, irrespective of geography. DGNN allows him to combine this passion with the opportunity to develop rigorous quantitative skills in machine learning.

Currently, he is studying the use of deep neural networks to predict individual treatment effects of neurosurgery after traumatic brain injury. Adil was recently awarded a DukeMed Engage Grant that will fund his travel to Uganda, where he will continue this work and field-test models.
