Currently, Dr. Rubin is Assistant Professor of Critical Care Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh. She was Assistant Professor at the USC Keck School of Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics as well as attending physician in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit (CTICU) at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Dr. Rubin received her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia and went on to receive her medical degree from the Chicago Medical School in Chicago, Illinois. She completed her clinical pediatrics residency and pediatric critical care fellowship at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in 2010. Dr. Rubin spent a year honing her clinical skills in the PICU and CTICU at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York before returning to CHLA to pursue a career as a physician-scientist. She will receive a master’s degree in Clinical, Biomedical, and Translational Science from USC in May 2014. Dr. Rubin is passionate about preventing critical illness in children. Her current work focuses on early identification and prevention of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, an often deadly pediatric illness. Her work leverages informatics techniques for extraction of complex medical data and utilizes both conventional statistics and novel machine learning algorithms to develop the first predictive model for pediatric ARDS.
