Martin Stumpe, PhD
Chief of AI
Dr. Martin Stumpe serves as the Chief of AI at Tempus. Prior to joining Tempus, he founded and led the Cancer Pathology project at Google, which uses artificial intelligence to increase the accuracy in image-based cancer detection and grading. His team also succeeded in integrating these diagnostics into optical microscopy for real-time augmented intelligence. Earlier in his career, Dr. Stumpe was part of the Kepler team at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, where he was responsible for the development of algorithms to detect extrasolar planets from stellar light curves. Before that, he was a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University in the lab of Vijay Pande, focusing on molecular dynamics simulations to study chaperone-induced protein folding. During this time, he also developed and brought to market a particle tracking software which is used primarily in ethological studies. Dr.Stumpe holds a PhD in Computational and Theoretical Physics from the Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Goettingen, Germany.
