Hello, I’m Jason Yeung.
Currently - An MD/PhD Student

Professionally, I study emerging viruses but I'm interested in all things data science. I run Data Pointes, a blog analyzing long-term outcomes of American ballet dancers.

Who am I?

I am a past ballet dancer turned future physician scientist! I am passionate about biomedical research on viral diseases. While I no longer dance professionally, I coordinate research focused on understanding disparities and long-term outcomes in ballet.

My area of focus is at the intersection of virology, medicine, and data science. Long-term, I'm looking to blend a research background in translational technologies for emerging viral illnesses with clinical pathology practice.
