Craig
Moodie

Dr. Craig Moodie emigrated from Kingston, Jamaica to the United States in 2002 to attend Macalester College in St. Paul, MN on the Kofi Annan International Scholarship. Craig studied neuroscience and psychology at Macalester and continued to work in the fields of psychology and neuroscience for more than 15 years at academic institutions such as Harvard Medical School, the University of Minnesota Medical School, and Stanford University. He is now a clinical research scientist in the health technology industry and, in his new role, he uses his clinical modeling expertise to try to disrupt the typical approaches of big pharma. Specifically, Craig leverages functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging (fcMRI) in clinical populations, and behavioral genetics, to develop machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) tools for neuroimaging-based biomarker identification and application to drug discovery. Craig has received an O-1A ‘Outstanding Scholar’ visa based on his contributions so far, and continues to work towards improving the utility and accessibility of mental health resources. He has also always stayed close to the arts and has performed as a vocalist, pianist, spoken word artist, and storyteller.
