I’m Jared Leitner, a PhD candidate in Data Science and Machine Learning in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at UCSD. In 2018, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from UCLA. I am currently working in the Mobile System Design Lab, under the supervision of Professor Sujit Dey. My research focuses on using machine learning techniques and wearable device data to enable more personalized, precise and proactive care through lifestyle modifications. Outside of academics, I enjoy traveling, playing guitar, exercising, and being outdoors.
