Dr Ari Caroline

Chief Analytics Officer, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Ari Caroline is the Chief Analytics Officer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). The MSKCC Analytics group, which Ari established, leverages the power of data science to empower clinical insights and to help shape strategic decisions at MSKCC. Over the past 10 years, MSKCC Analytics has pioneered the health care application of a wide variety of analytical methods, including natural language processing and machine learning.

The Data Products team is the latest addition to the group. Data Products brings the culture of a tech startup to MSKCC, with data science, engineering and interface design skills. These skills will allow MSKCC to translate its vast data and its clinical and research expertise into intuitive software applications.

Ari's team spearheaded efforts that lead to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center receiving the 2012 INFORMS Prize, awarded by the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences in recognition of organizations that have “repeatedly applied the principles of OR/MS in pioneering, varied, novel, and lasting ways.” He initiated MSKCC's collaboration with IBM to adapt IBM's Watson technology for oncology and to create an adaptable, evidence-based clinical decision support system.

Ari is now leading MSKCC's Knowledge Engine Initiative, with a goal of building a fully-integrated analytics platform that will make insights from the treasure trove of MSK data immediately accessible for clinicians and clinical researchers.

Ari holds an MBA from Yale University, with coursework towards a PhD in Financial Economics. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Michigan in Russian, Mandarin, and Development Economics.
