Jake Hughey, PhD is Adjunct Assistant Biomedical Informatics.  He is interested in machine learning, multi-scale analysis, and the dynamics and variability in biological systems. Current research involves developing and applying methods to improve our understanding of biological systems related to human health, including gastrointestinal disease and circadian rhythms.

As of spring 2023, he works as a Core Team Member of the Agency Fund, a new philanthropic initiative whose mission is to invest in ideas and organizations that expand human agency. One of his primary responsibilities is to help Agency Fund grantees (typically early-stage non-profits working in low- and middle-income countries) use data, computation, and experimentation to drive improved outcomes for beneficiaries.
