Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Cooper received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Ohio State University in 2009. He joined the Biomedical Informatics faculty at Emory University in 2012 where he was jointly appointed with Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. He joined the department of pathology at Northwestern in 2019 as an Associate Professor and Director of Computational Pathology.

My lab focuses on the applications of machine learning in cancer and fundamental research in machine learning. We develop algorithms to predict clinical outcomes from genomic, imaging, and histopathology data, and to extract quantitative descriptions of tissue microenvironments from digital pathology images. Our work has produced a number of software tools that enable researchers to manage large and complex datasets and to interact with these data using machine learning algorithms. Our goal is to improve the quality of predictions used in clinical management and to provide investigators with new insights in cancer biology. Our research has been funded by NLM, NCI, NIBIB, NINDS, and industry and foundation sources.
