Ariane Morassi Sasso

Digital Health Researcher | Biomedical Data Scientist
at Digital Health Center @ Hasso Plattner Institute

My goal is to improve healthcare using technology, data, and humanity. I am passionate about digital health and personalized medicine. I analyze data from daily life using wearables and machine learning to understand chronic diseases—especially hypertension. I am also an activist for women in STEM.

I have started my career at the LIS lab (, researching and developing systems for the public mental health sector in Ribeirão Preto (Brazil). After that, I had the fantastic opportunity to work at the A. C. Camargo Cancer Center in São Paulo (Brazil) with clinical data integration from multiple sources, such as their hospital information system and the pathology and imaging report systems. In 2017, I moved to Berlin (Germany) to work at Clincase (, supporting contract research organizations. Currently, I am a digital health researcher at the Digital Health Center of the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) in Potsdam (Germany).

My main interests are: (1) use machine learning and biostatistics to make sense of health-related data (e.g., from sensors or electronic health records); (2) improve the visualization and communication of information to users regarding health-related data.

I have a BSc in Biomedical Informatics and MSc in Bioengineering (Health Information Systems) from the University of São Paulo (Brazil). I am pursuing a Ph.D. at the Hasso Plattner Institute (Digital Health Center) in Potsdam (Germany).
