About Me

Hey. My name is Will.

I'm a writer (of code, and now often words). I spend my life building the future of healthcare for patients, so I think a lot about medical incentive design, computational drug design, and building scalable care systems.

These days I’m leading Cascade.bio, a venture-backed biotech working on intelligence augmentation for drug developers, and investing (and now managing the Boston practice of) First Round Capital's Dorm Room Fund. Previously, I researched interpretability problems for machine learning systems in bioinformatics at Foundation Medicine, pioneered one-shot learning systems for EHR data and lead product for PathwaysAI, and was a visiting researcher at Immuuneering where I was working on NLP systems for clinical data. 

As of December 2018, I am on leave from Olin College, a small experimental engineering college where I was working on various problems in computing.

In my free time, I frequent independent bookstores, obsess over Boston public transport, and race sailboats. I love reading about organizational design, stoic philosophy, and typology.
