Hi! I'm Ajay (pronounced uh-jay).

I'm on the Biosecurity and Pandemic Preparedness team at Open Philanthropy, where I work on roadmapping and strategy to advance technologies for pandemic prevention.

Previously, I worked on projects related to machine learning, healthcare, and life sciences at AWS and at Grand Challenge, Amazon's moonshot lab. Prior to that, I was Co-founder and CTO at Somatic Labs, a company developing wearable devices for customers ranging from NASA to Fortune 500 companies. I've also conducted research in neural microsystems and human-computer interfaces.
