Director, Machine Learning

Every day I feel lucky to collaborate with incredible teams, turning science into medicine.

Aaron Arvey

Aaron’s role at Third Rock is to advance therapeutic and diagnostic R&D with focused hypothesis-driven machine learning. He enjoys alternating between strategy and technical execution to build data platforms that match scientific strategy. He is motivated by proven impact on patient lives and excited by innovative scientific methods. Aaron initially trained as a computer scientist and mathematician, working at the intersection of machine learning theory and algorithm implementation. However, it wasn't until he happened upon molecular biology and the cellular microcosm that he found his passion. Since then, he has been in perpetual awe of the never-ending stream of high-impact scientific opportunities in biotech.

Outside of the office, Aaron enjoys cooking, cycling, ultimate frisbee, and hanging out with his awesome wife and two kids.
