As Principal Research Engineer at Global Health Labs (GH Labs), Courosh Mehanian leads the development of machine learning tools that bridge healthcare gaps in low- and middle-income countries. His work leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance image-based diagnostics, with applications ranging from point-of-care ultrasound to malaria microscopy. He has led projects from prototype algorithm development through productization, regulatory filing, and clinical validation.
Prior to GH Labs, Courosh served as a Research Associate Professor at the Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact at the University of Oregon and, before that, Principal Investigator at Global Good, an investment fund of Intellectual Ventures. He also brings three decades of additional AI experience to his work through key positions at the intersection of AI and biomedicine at Charles River Laboratories and Cytyc Corporation, and in semiconductors and defense at KLA Corporation, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, and Boston University.
Courosh earned his PhD in Physics at Cornell University and a BS in Physics and Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania.
