Prior to joining Canaan, she cofounded the world’s first peer-to-peer car rental company, and studied accelerating technologies in the NASA and Google backed Singularity University. She also worked for the Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative as a health care analyst based in Africa. Her work helped empower African governments to improve national laboratory capacity for HIV/AIDS treatment and helped to enhance the local leadership’s ability to map the scope of the HIV/AIDS and devise effective treatment and prevention strategies.
Sarah believes that accelerating technologies carry great potential to erase traditional inequities in access to resources. She is particularly enthused about using technologies such as cell phones, narrow AI, data mining, data visualization, genetic information, and the internet to drastically improve quality and access in education and health care.
She coauthored Synaptic Protein Synthesis Associated with Memory Is Regulated by the RISC Pathway in Drosophila which describes her laboratory research on the molecular basis of learning and memory.
