Core team

Dr. Devin Singh
Co-Founder & CEO

Dr. Devin Singh is one of Canada's first physicians to specialize in clinical artificial intelligence (AI) and a practicing Pediatric Emergency Medicine Doctor at SickKids (the Hospital for Sick Children) in Toronto, Canada.

He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Western Ontario in medical sciences and went on to work for the Ontario Provincial Government. Afterward, he attended medical school at the University of Sydney, Australia, followed by a Pediatric residency and Emergency Medicine subspecialty training at SickKids Hospital. His fellowship in clinical AI was completed at SickKids and he is finishing a Master's in Computer Science Degree (2020) at the University of Toronto, Canada.

He is on the cutting edge of pediatric machine learning research with a focus on clinical automation.

Pouria has worked in the world of tech for nearly a decade, with experience as a system administrator for high-performance compute environments in some of Canada's largest hospitals. He is also a full-stack web developer, security analyst, and machine learning specialist. His jack-of-all trades expertise allows him to create secure and scalable platforms.

He completed his Masters of Computer Science at the University of Toronto in 2019, with a specialization in applications of machine learning in the field of healthcare.

He is committed to creating global impact in the way healthcare is delivered through collaboration and AI.

Stephen Lu
Co-Founder, Director R&D

Stephen is our genius software developer who believes no problem is too big to solve. His ability to invent novel software solutions for the integration of AI and hardware technologies into clinical workflows has been essential towards the creation of our clinical care automation systems. Starting as a research student with our team, Stephen demonstrated that his approach to AI integration into healthcare is way ahead of the curve.

His academic focus specifically includes the development of machine learning deployment pipelines in pediatric medicine and has recently published work with researchers at SickKids Hospital in Toronto, Canada.

Jerine Nicole Hernandez
Technical Project Manager

Jerine is an Emergency Registered Nurse at North York General Hospital in Toronto, Canada. Working in a highly acute setting has honed on her ability to deal with and manage high stress situations effectively.

Having worked in the field for many years, she has begun to question the lack of technology currently being leveraged within healthcare, and aims to fill that gap.

At Hero AI, Jerine not only manages our development cycles, she ensures patients and providers are at the heart of everything we build.

Brian Lynch
Co-Founder & COO

Brian Lynch has 12 years of experience leading data science transformations in the banking industry where he has operationalized solutions targeted at fraud reduction, loss mitigation, operational improvements and customer acquisition and engagement. He has led broad cross functional teams, with a focus on attracting, engaging and retaining a diverse set of top talent while delivering results that make the banking experience more comfortable for customers.

Brian's work in the healthcare space was motivated by the birth of his son.
