As featured in the 2021 Blugold View online, Dr. Rajeev Chaudhry is the regional director of artificial intelligence (AI) and biomedical informatics for Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire. In December 2019 Chaudhry stepped into a new role dedicated to working with UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students on research projects that relate to AI, machine learning, and data mining and analytics.
