Roger is a registered US patent attorney and serial entrepreneur who founded YouGene, a clinical laboratory that uses machine learning to classify genetic data. YouGene was a member of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Incubator Program at Columbia University. To accelerate the adoption of precision healthcare, YouGene is tokenizing DNA information to incentivize and provide liquidity for a genetic data-commons. YouGene’s unified variant classification and asset transfer platform allows stakeholders to transact with each other; thereby, removing friction, building trust, and unlocking value across networks of scientists, laboratories, and hospitals.
Roger’s interests include developing machine learning software for Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Natural Language Generation (NLG). He recently developed a supervised machine learning application capable of classifying patent documents using any one of logistic regression, Bayesian classifiers, support vector machines, and decision trees. His programming work also includes novel bioinformatics tools and data-science applications.
Roger holds a B.S. in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois, a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University, a J.D. from the Chicago Kent College of Law, and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
