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 evidence generation in biomedicine, and investing (and 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 few-shot learning systems for EHR data and lead product for PathwaysAI, and was a visiting researcher at Immuneering. As of December 2018, I am on leave from Olin College, an 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 abstraction, organizational theory, and internet culture. I love to read about organizational theory, gonzo journalism, and internet culture.
