  • AI in Healthcare Research (Development)

    During his master's program, Gabriel conducted research at the Stanford Partnership in AI-Assisted Care, a joint lab between the Stanford Computer Science Department (Prof. Fei-Fei Liā€”Chief Scientist of Cloud AI/ML at Google) and the Stanford School of Medicine (Prof. Arnold Milstein). His research focused on improving clinical care and reducing monitoring costs in hospitals by leveraging machine learning and computer vision, and resulted in a first-author manuscript selected as Top 10 Research Paper at the NIPS Machine Learning for Health 2017 Workshop.

  • Quantitative Trading for Cryptoassets (Development)

    Gabriel built an algorithmic and quantitative trading platform for crypto-asset markets that handled over US$10 million in volume. He developed quantitative strategies based on techniques from signal processing, control theory, machine learning, and blockchain analysis, and created a crypto portfolio optimization framework with convex optimization. Using these tools, he managed a portfolio of hundreds of thousands of dollars for his investors and outperformed both Bitcoin and the Coinbase Index.

  • Quantum Deep Learning Research (Development)

    Gabriel was one of ten students to graduate with honors in computer science in his undergraduate class at Stanford. His thesis investigated quantum deep learning algorithms using NASA's D-Wave quantum computer, and was selected for a presentation at the AQC 2017 Conference in Tokyo, Japan.
