Great to see you here! I am Ariane Sasso, a Digital Health Researcher at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany. Currently I try to understand until what extent can you predict blood pressure from wearable devices under the supervision of Prof. Erwin Böttinger and Prof. Bert Arnrich.
My background is in Biomedical Informatics, a degree from the University of São Paulo in Brazil. I have worked with mental healthcare information systems there and during my masters. All at the Laboratory of Health Inteligence, coordinated by Prof. Domigos Alves. Afterwards, I have been a Medical Informatics Analysis at the A. C. Camargo Cancer Center, under the guidance of Dr. Diogo Patrao.

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 (links coming soon).
