Rheeda Ali, ICM Postdoctoral Fellow, awarded 2018 Provost Fellowship
Rheeda Ali, a postdoctoral fellow working in the Institute for Computational Medicine, has been named one of the third annual Johns Hopkins University Provosts’ Postdoctoral Fellowship recipients. Ali is one of eight trainees selected from various divisions of Johns Hopkins for outstanding early career experience and an aptitude for academic leadership.
Ali obtained her PhD in Bioengineering at Imperial College London, and a MEng in Bioengineering with Electrical Engineering from the same institution. Her research focuses on the development and validation of atrial models for the prediction of treatment strategies for Atrial Fibrillation. Ali conducts her research in the lab of Natalia Trayanova, Murray B. Sachs Professor of Biomedical Engineering.
The Provost’s Fellows Program was established in 2011 to provide an opportunity for administrative leadership development, particularly in fields where there are fewer women or members of underrepresented minorities. Fellows collaborate with Vice Provosts to develop projects that enhance the academic mission of the university, serve on committees and task forces sponsored by the Provost, and serve as representatives of the Provost’s Office as they work on related activities.
Previous fellows have become leaders in academia, private industry, and government.
