Ashutosh Jadhav is a researcher in the Medical Sieve project at IBM Almaden Research Center. Medical Sieve is an ambitious long-term exploratory grand challenge project to build a next-generation automated cognitive assistant with advanced multimodal analytics, clinical knowledge, and reasoning capabilities that is qualified to assist in clinical decision making in radiology and cardiology. Ashutosh received a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from Wright State University, Ohio in 2016. During his Ph.D., he worked as a Research Assistant at Kno.e.sis Research Center at Wright State University and supervised by Prof. Amit Sheth. His dissertation research was on knowledge-driven search intent mining from health-related search queries. He has worked as a research intern at HP Labs in California (summer 2011) and Mayo Clinic (2013-2014). He holds a Masters degree in Computer Engineering from Wright State University and a Bachelors degree in Information Technology from VJTI, Mumbai University, India. He is also a two-time recipient of the Mayo Clinic Meritorious Award (2013 and 2014).
