Dr. Jean Louis is Data Science and Research Lead and Senior Scientist at the ICT Department and Precision Medicine Unit of Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV). His work aims to advance personalized medicine by utilizing advanced machine learning methods and privacy-enhancing technologies to develop new distributed and privacy-preserving solutions for mining of large-scale health data across multiple organizations. He is co-inventor of MedCo, the first open-source and fully privacy-preserving platform for federated analytics of health data, and member of several medical informatics expert groups at the national level within the framework of the Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN) initiative.
Jean Louis joined CHUV in 2018 from EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland where he was first a doctoral and then post-doctoral researcher in the Laboratory for Data Security. While at EPFL, he worked in close collaboration with computer scientists, biomedical researchers, geneticists and industrial professionals from Lausanne University Hospital, Harvard Medical School and Sophia Genetics SA on developing the first practical solutions for privacy-preserving management of genomic and health data that were based on homomorphic encryption.
Jean Louis holds a PhD in Computer and Communication Sciences (2018) from EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland, a MSc in Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics (2012) and a BSc in Biomedical Engineering (2009) from University of Pavia, Italy.
