Lauren Eyler, M.D., M.P.H., is a general surgery resident at UCSF. During the research years of her residency, she is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Biostatistics at UC Berkeley. She previously received her B.S. from Yale University in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, her M.P.H. from UC Berkeley, and her M.D. from UCSF. Her research focuses on developing novel machine learning algorithms to help build surgical systems and improve health equity in low- and middle-income countries.

Lauren is interested in developing novel machine learning algorithms to help build surgical systems and improve health equity in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). 

She previously wrote a k-medoids clustering based algorithm to define simple, population-specific metrics of economic status for LMICs based on Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) data. These EconomicClusters models may be used for health disparities research in settings where traditional metrics, which are based on lengthy questionnaires, are not feasible to assess. She developed an R package available on Github and R Shiny app so that other researchers may develop EconomicClusters models for any country with DHS data.

She is currently working on a statistical algorithm to minimize the computational capacity required to predict hypotensive events from pulse oximetry waveform data.
