Google Research

Mercy Nyamewaa Asiedu


I currently works as a research scientist at Google Research, RAI-HCT with the CAIR team and my research interests lie in developing fair and robust algorithms for equitable health in underserved settings. Before Google, I was a Schmidt Science Fellow at MIT, where I worked on different machine learning areas in medical imaging and clinical NLP. I obtained my PhD from Duke University and my thesis focused on developing devices and algorithms for cervical cancer screening in underserved settings. I love to bring my research to practical use and have co-founded two startups, one to commercialize my cervical cancer screening work and the other to develop patient-centered mobile health applications for collecting health data and increasing access to healthcare.
