Kilian M. Pohl

Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Stanford
Program Director of Biomedical Computing, SRI International

Kilian’s research is founded on computational science aimed at identifying biomedical phenotypes improving the mechanistic understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders. His research embraces the diversity and complexity of disorders through unbiased, machine learning-based searches across measurements derived from highly-dimensional biological, neuroimaging, cognitive, and behavioral data.

Kilian is the founder of the CNS Lab, an Associate Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University and has a secondary appointment as Program Director of Biomedical Computing at SRI International. He received his Ph.D. from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was an Instructor at Harvard Medical School, a research scientist at IBM Research, and an Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania. His research in medical image analysis has received several awards, including in 2014 the “Creative and Novel Ideas in HIV Research Award”. Kilian is currently the principal investigator of several NIH funded projects, including a U24 and two R01s. In addition, twelve of my mentees hold faculty appointments at other universities.
