Great to see you here! I am Ariane Sasso, a researcher at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany. Currently I try to understand to what extent we can estimate blood pressure from wearable devices under the supervision of Prof. Erwin Böttinger and Prof. Bert Arnrich. Among my interests are digital biomarkers and machine learning applied to healthcare.
My background is in Biomedical Informatics a degree from the University of São Paulo in Brazil. There, I have worked with information systems for mental healthcare, especially during my masters. All at the laboratory of health intelligence (LIS), coordinated by Prof. Domigos Alves. Afterwards, I worked as a software engineer at the A. C. Camargo Cancer Center. There I was involved in information retrieval and data integration projects under the guidance of Dr. Diogo Patrão.

Now to the fun things, I am a mother of two fury beings (Yogi and Gatsby) and I do enjoy a good reading. I am an advocate for more women in science, technology and well, everywhere. On that topic, we just published two interesting research articles on gender bias in science and how to empower women regarding digital innovations and foster more inclusive workforces. Check them out ( 🙂 )!
