Leonardo Rodrigues, Ph.D.
Vice President of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
Leonardo Rodrigues, Ph.D., is the Vice President of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, where he leads the continuous development of BERG analytics-platforms, the analysis of projects across the entire clinical development pipeline, and the research and development of innovative analytics technologies.
With more than 15 years of academic and industry experience, he has a solid background in computer science, biology and systems engineering. By advocating that data analytics might focus on minimal data-manipulation and maximum result-actionability, which is achieved by allowing the data to define the analysis parameters and properly balancing innovation/tradition throughout the analysis process, Dr. Rodrigues has established at BERG one of the most efficient and innovative data analysis teams of the industry. He is a regular speaker in Pharma Analytics meetings, has conducted workshops of best practices in data analysis, and is a reference in applying AI and Advanced Analytics methods to extract actionable insights from RWD/RWE and molecular data.
Dr. Rodrigues holds a Technology Bachelor’s Degree in Data Processing, a Bachelor’s Degree in Molecular Sciences with a major in Bioinformatics, and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry. He concluded his postdoctoral work at the Whitehead Institute-MIT, where he applied statistics, bioinformatics, and molecular/cell biology to study the role of cancer stem cells in tumor development and metastasis initiation.
