About Me

Sinchai Tsao PhD is currently CEO at Voxel Healthcare. His expertise is in the intersection of machine learning and image analysis / computer vision to solve problems in healthcare.

Sinchai has more than 10 years of experience as a computational scientist working on multiple medical imaging problems such as: (1) machine learning-based classification of Malaria in pathology slides (2) using MRI metrics to investigate changes during Dementia and Aging (3) surface analysis of the developing human cerebral cortex (4) automated determination of skeletal bone age in children from hand x-rays.

Sinchai received his A.B. in International Relations and Sc.B. in Biophysics from Brown University and his M.S. in Electrical Engineering as well as M.S. & PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the Viterbi School of Engineering at University of Southern California. He is a graduate of the CIBORG Laboratory at USC/Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where his advisor was Natasha Lepore, PhD. He was also part of Manbir Singh, PhD‘s Biomedical Imaging Lab before his passing in Dec, 2011. During his time in Los Angeles, he also served as Director of Engineering Curriculum for Iridescent Learning – a science education 501c3 non-profit. Sinchai then moved to Seattle where he did his postdoctoral training at University of Washington’s Biomedical Image Computing Group in the Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics. After his postdoc, he was  a scientific software engineering consultant for Malaria Diagnostics as well as Ultrasound Diagnostics at Intellectual Ventures Labs in Bellevue, WA.
