Vivek Rudrapatna


Data nerd and chaat-snacking fanatic

Dr. Vivek Rudrapatna is a gastroenterologist who specializes in caring for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a condition that has affected his own life. He is also a physician-scientist, a doctor particularly focused on medical research.

Rudrapatna's research applies data mining and artificial intelligence technologies to health care data in order to uncover information that could improve decision making and lead to better outcomes for patients.

Rudrapatna earned his medical degree and a doctorate in cancer genetics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He completed a residency in internal medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, followed by a fellowship in gastroenterology at UCSF.

In a "former life," Rudrapatna was a semiprofessional Carnatic (Indian classical) violinist who founded the group Saptaswara, a fusion ensemble blending the sounds of gypsy jazz guitar, bluegrass mandolin, Western violin and north Indian tabla.
