My lab works on detection of big medical problems at scale using AI/ML tools. We are interested in both, bottom-up and up-bottom approaches, as both carry their unique advantages.
My focus is on perinatal health of mother and child (before and after birth). This domain of healthcare may seem at first to concern only a relatively small number of people. However, the data analyses on population level clearly show that the true repercussions of neglecting maternal and perinatal health (prevention and early detection) are far-reaching with life-long and transgenerational impact on health and economies. This makes it very worthwhile and rewarding for me to work on.
